RE: Bits and bobs




emacspeak-snippets? After django-snippets, snippets of short code with
commentary. I too have some bits of code specific to blind emacs users
I'd like to share.

Here's an example, its not specific to emacspeak, but its only useful
to a blind emacs user. It says the pwd backwards. Its handy if you're
at the bottom of a deeply nested directory and you can't wait for the
whole path to be read out.




(defun dwp()
  (interactive)
  (let* ((cwd default-directory)
	 (parts (split-string cwd "/"))
(strap (reverse parts))
(d (mapconcat 'identity strap "\\"))
(d1 (substring d 1))
)
    (message d1)))

Now, whenever I need to get emacs and emacspeak running on a new system, I just clone the repo into ~/.emacs.d and if I make any changes, I just make them locally and push them back up to github, later pulling them down onto other hosts as necessary.
