buffer-local isn't really good enough. I do want to use the frame for
make-variable-frame-local is listed as obsolete in emacs 22.2 and
beyond, which are the ones I use (22.2 and 23.0.60). The interesting
output of (describe-function 'make-variable-frame-local) is
make-variable-frame-local is an interactive built-in function in `C source
This function is obsolete since 22.2;
use a frame-parameter instead.
Enable VARIABLE to have frame-local bindings.
This does not create any frame-local bindings for VARIABLE,
it just makes them possible.
A frame-local binding is actually a frame parameter value.
If a frame F has a value for the frame parameter named VARIABLE,
that also acts as a frame-local binding for VARIABLE in F--
provided this function has been called to enable VARIABLE
to have frame-local bindings at all.
The only way to create a frame-local binding for VARIABLE in a frame
is to set the VARIABLE frame parameter of that frame. See
`modify-frame-parameters' for how to set frame parameters.
Buffer-local bindings take precedence over frame-local bindings.
I have been able to set the frame parameter "title", but that doesn't
give the ability to use %b %f. My attempts at using
make-variable-frame-local and/or modify-frame-parameters have not
yet yielded the equivalent of my desired
as described above.
Thanks for your comments.
