Re: [emacspeak The Complete Audio Desktop] Browsing Sourceforge Download Servers



Hi Raman,

I like those Blog posting very much because as someone who is fairly
new to emacspeak they almost always teach me something new.

I encountered a proglem with the sourceforge download smart-URL. On the
page with the available downloads, 'C-d' is bound to 'delete-char' as
usual, so I do not know which function to invoke to start the actual
download process. I use w3 and the URL package both from the savannah
CVS.

Best regards, Lukas

...This brings
   up the index page for the project's download area, sorted by date.
   Move to the bottom of the page and hit b to move to the latest
   available download.

   The smart URL sets up the W3 buffer with a context-sensitive download
   function; when on a download link, hit C-d to start downloading. This
   command will prompt for the URL; rather than hitting return (which
   would bring you to the browse mirrors page, hit M-p to get the
   download URL for your SF mirror. Note that this wizard uses GNU wget
   to perform the download via Emacs module w3-wget.
