when quitting emacs save-buffers-kill-terminal 【Ctrl+x Ctrl+c】, emacs will ask to save unsaved buffer, but doesn't switch it to front to let you see.
Is there a hook or variable to make it so?
Note: save-buffers-kill-terminal eventually calls save-some-buffers. According to its inline doc, it says you can press 【Ctrl+r】 to view the buffers in question. (this doesn't work in ErgoEmacs for some reason, i'll have to look into) In anycase, i want automatic switch.
【Ctrl+h s】 calls “describe-syntax”. nice.
other keys i learned in past months and use heavily are:
- 【Ctrl+x Ctrl+j】 (dired-jump). Switch to dired and put cursor on current file.
- 【Ctrl+x Ctrl+q】 (toggle-read-only). I use it only in dired, which actually calls dired-toggle-read-only → wdired-change-to-wdired-mode. Lets you change file names by edit.
