Re: [Qemacs-devel] Config file questions

Hi Hadrien,

Scripting support is flaky at the moment, I am still investigating various 
options for the scripting language.
Still I am surprised `set_tab_width(4)` does not work, did you end your config 
lines with a semicolon?

I currently have this content in my ~/.qerc file:

// Tab-width is now more commonly set to 4
indent_tabs_mode = 0;
indent_width = 4;

And it works for me.

Note that qemacs loads ~/.qe/config at startup and it loads all .qerc files 
found in any of the parent directories of any file it loads into a buffer. 
.qerc files are loaded in hierarchical order, from the root directory down to 
the the directory of the current file.  You can put a .qerc file in the main 
directory of a project to set project-wide default values.

The current version has some shortcomings you might find problematic:

- long lines in the process buffer cause erratic display
- file times are not checked after the initial load: qemacs does not detect if 
a file loaded in a buffer is modified on disk asynchronously.
- yanking more than 4K into the process buffer for input may cause a crash

Which version of emacs are you familiar with?
I am interested to hear your feedback.
