Could someone tell me how to move my backups to ~/.backups and have them named something like "|home|me|.emacs.1" and then "|home|me|.emacs.2", "|home|me|.emacs.3" and so on. I can't get make-backup-file-name to work on 21.?


Why did you go directly to make-backup-file-name?  There's a simpler
facility; see the doc string of backup-directory-alist.  Any reasons
why it won't do what you want?



1) Somebody told me it was the way to go.
2) Will do!
3) No idea, will check and get back. For now, ebackup.el is ok by me.

Thanks Eli!
