Re: [ferret_users] emacs


Actually, that is an interesting way of accomplishing things. I envision a binding that would:

1) Save the current buffer (.jnl file)
2) Open a split window
3) run ansi-term (or equivalent) on the above saved file in the new window 4) I would also add a binding that would add meta-up arrow and meta- down arrow for shifting between windows (and maybe I can add something that would route STD_ERR to another window - dreaming here)

Thanks for the input Ryo and Sudheer.

Regards, Mark

Thank you Ryo & Mark
I have tested a jnl file may be in an un professional way but it works
what I tried is as below
edited a jnl file in emacs
saved it by
C-x C-s
then M-! for getting shell prompt and then at prompt issued the command
ferret < test.jnl &
this produced the graphics
But if the above chain of command can be wrapped into a single shell
then I think the problem is solved.
best regards,

$ cat test.jnl
use levitus_climatology
set view ul
fill temp[x=40:100,y=0:30,k=1]
set view ur
fill salt[x=40:100,y=0:30i,k=1]

Hi Mark,

| Could you try running ferret in ansi-term and see how that works for
| you? (M-x ansi-term)

When I typed M-x ansi-term, emacs asked which program I wanted
to run.  So, I answered /usr/local/bin/ferret and then I was
given a command line of Ferret.

So, if you can send the contents of a buffer to emacs's
ANSI terminal (I'm afraid I don't know how), you can
control Ferret from the buffer.


with best regards
