OCTAVE-NOWAIT: Octave -- EMACS interface functions


  • Stephen Eglen



At the moment, the Emacs commands that send commands from octave source buffers to the inferior octave process wait for the command to finish before Emacs allows the user to do anything else. This can be frustrating, since Emacs is effectively unsuable until Octave finishes each command. The following code provides two temporary functions, sje-octave-send-line and sje-octave-send-region, so that Emacs doesn't wait until the current Octave command has finished.
