w3m gives 'Wrong type argument: stringp, nil" error

From: Christopher M. Balz
Subject: w3m gives 'Wrong type argument: stringp, nil" error
Date: 3 Jun 2003 14:39:32 -0700

Running GNU Emacs 23.3.1 on Windows 2000.  I'm trying to use w3m via
emacs_w3m.  Every time I enter an M-x w3m- command, or just M-x w3m, I
get the

    'Wrong type argument: stringp, nil" error 

I think the problem is because w3m is not installed as an executable
on my system.  In the w3m doc, under installation, all there is is "No
problem. :)".  Oddly, I can't seem to find anything that resembles the
bona fide w3m executable.  Anyone know where the executable is and
what it is named?

Installation of emacs_w3m (v1.3.3) went just fine (I had to create a
couple directories, but that worked just fine).  Here is the
installation from a DOS prompt:

C:\Program Files\emacs\emacs-21.3\bin>emacs -batch -q -no-site-file -l
 c:/Progra~1/emacs/site/emacs-w3m-1.3.3/w3mhack.el NONE -f
emacs -batch -q -no-site-file -l 
c:/Progra~1/emacs/site/emacs-w3m-1.3.3/w3mhack.el NONE -f
 `fns-21.3.1.elc' is up to date
cp fns-21.3.1.el c:/Program Files/emacs/site-lisp/w3m/fns-21.3.1.el
cp fns-21.3.1.elc c:/Program Files/emacs/site-lisp/w3m/fns-21.3.1.elc

C:\Program Files\emacs\emacs-21.3\bin>

All my packages are up to date, and my .emacs file is below (to find
all related to 'w3m', just search on 'w3').

;; This is a web programmer's .emacs file for GNU Emacs.
;; It has been tested on GNU Emacs version 21.3.1 on Windows 2000, 
;; Service Pack 3.

;; This Document Last Modified: 06/03/2003.
;; Portability: It would take minimal or no changes to port it to run
on Unix;
;; the one major change definitely needed would be to remove the
;; code, since that is only for putting the BASH shell on Windows.

;; General Notes:  It is often said that a new Emacs user should stay
away from old, crusty
;;                 '.emacs' files from others.  However, the only way
that I ever was able
;;                 to get a reasonable return on the investment of my
time put into setting
;;                 up my Emacs configurations was by borrowing code
snippets from others.
;;                 It is true that no '.emacs' file should be used
uncritically, by newbie or
;;                 by others.  
;;                 However, for the best user base, new users should
be able to
;;                 fairly easily clip out sections of '.emacs' files
that interest them and put
;;                 them to use right away in their own '.emacs' files.
 To this end, I have
;;                 attempted to effectively segment the various
independent components of this
;;                 '.emacs' file and have documented what I have done
as clearly as possible.
;;                 It's very exciting how Emacs modes related to
software engineering for the
;;                 web are maturing.  

;; ------------   Invocation of Gnu Emacs on Win2K: 
;;    From Windows shortcut icon with these properties on shortcut's
'Properties' menu:
;;        'Target': 
;;           "C:\Program Files\emacs\emacs-21.3\bin\runemacs.exe" -l
;;         'Start in' (Note: I use Cygwin, see below):
;;           C:/cygwin/home/Administrator/
;;    Set user-specific 'HOME' environment variable to
'C:/cygwin/home/Administrator', which is
;;    the directory in which my '.emacs' file is located.  Do this by
going to the Control Panel,
;;    then to 'System', then to 'Advanced', then to 'Environment
Variables', the to 'Variables
;;    for <user>'. 

;; ------------  Commense lisping:

;; Add the site directory (the site directory is used to contain
non-core Emacs Lisp packages)
;; to the Emacs load-path.  The Emacs load-path is 
;; the list of directories where Emacs searches for packages that you
;; This must be at the head of your .emacs file.  This code prepends
the site directory to the load path:
;; Standard emacs lisp access (for non-byte-compiled access):
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
;; System-wide emacs customizations:
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
;; Personal emacs/site:
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/emacs/site/")) 
;; So that Emacs can find the home directory files (desktop, etc.):
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/")) 
;; Specific Packages:
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
;;        For Emacs JDE (from
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
;; For the Emacs Web Browser:
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "C:/Program

;; On Windows 2000, it is sufficient to set the user-specific 'HOME'
;; variable (see above) to the path to your .emacs file.  For example,
mine goes to:
;; 'C:/cygwin/home/Administrator'.  Most other systems should have a 
;; reasonably sane approach to doing this.  These approaches are best.
;; However, if on some other system you have
;; trouble saving your customizations (meaning, the customizations
;; through the command ESC-x customize-group, and meaning, the error
;; 'saving settings from 'emacs -q' would overwrite customizations'),
;; explicitly assigning the 'user-init-file' variable is a sure-fire
;; to avoid the problem:
;; (setq user-init-file (expand-file-name "~/.emacs")
;;        custom-file (expand-file-name "~/.emacs"))
