;; For csh users, insert the following alias in your .cshrc file
;; (after removing the leading double semicolons):
;;# The following line could be just EMACS=emacs, but this depends on
;;# your site.
;;set EMACS=emacs
;;set EMACS_PATTERN="^\[[0-9]\] . Stopped ............ $EMACS"
;;alias emacs \
;;' \\
;; jobs >! /tmp/jobs$$ \\
;; && grep "$EMACS_PATTERN" /tmp/jobs$$ >& /dev/null \\
;; && echo `pwd` \!* >! ~/.emacs_args && eval "%$EMACS" \\
;;|| test -S ~/.emacs_server && emacsclient \!* \\
;;|| test "$?DISPLAY" = 1 && eval "\$EMACS -i \!* &" \\
;;|| test "$?WINDOW_PARENT" = 1 && eval "emacstool -f emacstool-init \!* &" \\
;;|| eval "\$EMACS -nw \!*"'
;; The alias works as follows:
;; 1. If there is a suspended emacs jobs that is a child of the
;; current shell, place its arguments in the ~/.emacs_args file and
;; resume it.
;; 2. Else if the ~/.emacs_server socket has been created, presume an
;; emacs server is running and attempt to connect to it. If no emacs
;; server is listening on the socket, this will fail.
;; 3. Else if the DISPLAY environment variable is set, presume we are
;; running under X Windows and start a new X Gnu Emacs process in the
;; background.
;; 4. Else if the WINDOW_PARENT environment variable is set, presume we
;; are running under Sunview and Suntools and start an emacstool
;; process in the background.
;; 5. Else start a regular emacs process.
;; Notes:
;; "test -S" checks if a unix domain socket by that name exists.
;; The output of the "jobs" command is not piped directly into "grep"
;; because that would run the "jobs" command in a subshell.
;; Before resuming a suspended emacs, the current directory and all
;; command line arguments are placed in a file.
;; The command to run emacs is always preceded by a \ to prevent
;; possible alias loops.
;; The "-nw" switch in the last line is is undocumented, and it means
;; no windowing system.
