Subject: Re: One lisp many emacs connections? From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 2000/05/18 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Jonathan Siegel <firstname.lastname@example.org> | I am wondering if it is possible to start a lisp process on a machine | independent from an emacs session and then have many emacs sessions | connect to this process through the emacs-lisp interface (ELI). I have been looking for ways to accomplish this myself. After much chagrin and wasting of time, I settled for Lisp listeners reachable with ordinary Telnet sessions, and use those almost exclusively where I need "multi-port access", while Allegro CL runs under an Emacs in a screen that I normally stay detached from. The core problem is that ELI uses a separate channel to communicate signals and a few other situations that are hard to communicate in-band. E.g., it would be confusing if Allegro CL wanted to open a new background stream to an Emacs buffer and it did so in the wrong Emacs. How to communicate which Emacs to talk to is unsolved. #:Erik -- If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
