bug#17985: 24.3.92; doc-view-open-text raises wrong-type-argument error


From: Stephen Berman
Subject: bug#17985: 24.3.92; doc-view-open-text raises wrong-type-argument error
Date: Thu, 10 Jul 2014 14:26:18 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.3.92 (gnu/linux)

If I'm using Gnus to read mail with an attachment, I can type `c' on the
attachment to view it in another buffer, and if the attachment is
something that Doc View can handle, I can type `C-c C-c' in the buffer
to view the rendered image of the attachment.  But if I then type `C-c
C-t' (doc-view-open-text) to view the ascii text of the attachment, I
get this error:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument stringp nil)
  file-name-nondirectory(nil)
  doc-view-open-text()
  call-interactively(doc-view-open-text nil nil)
  command-execute(doc-view-open-text)

The reason is that Doc View expects the buffer to be visiting a file.
But with an mail attachment, that does not have to be the case (when I
type `C-c C-c', Doc View says: "The buffer has been modified.  Save the
changes? (y or n)", but if I answer "n", it still renders the image).
The following patch lets me view the ascii text whether or not the
buffer containing the document is visiting a file.  (The patch is
against emacs-24; the error also happens in trunk.)
