HOW TO COMPILE AND TEST
-----------------------
HOW TO COMPILE
--------------
To try out the multi-tty branch, compile and run the multi-tty branch
with the following commands:
The multi-tty branch is compiled the same way as Emacs itself:
find -name "*.elc" | xargs rm # Delete leftover stuff
mkdir +build
cd +build
../configure <your favourite options>
./configure <your favourite options>
make bootstrap
src/emacs -nw # You can also try without -nw
make install
HOW TO TEST IT
--------------
To try out the multi-tty branch start up the Emacs server with the
following commands:
emacs
M-x server-start
and then (from a shell prompt on another terminal) start emacsclient
with
lib-src/emacsclient /optional/file/names...
or
lib-src/emacsclient -t /optional/file/names...
emacsclient -t /optional/file/names... (for a tty frame)
emacsclient /optional/file/names... (for an X frame)
(Make sure both emacs and emacsclient are multi-tty versions.)
You'll hopefully have two fully working, independent frames on
separate terminals. The new frame is closed automatically when you
finish editing the specified files (C-x #), but delete-frame (C-x 5 0)
