\begin{document} in verbatim env.

Hi all,

I'm working on a document in which I with to cite an Elisp function that
produces a small LaTeX file based on some input. This function essentially
opens a temp buffer, writes the LaTeX code in it, and then saves it. Part
of the LaTeX code it writes is (obviously) a "\begin{document}"
statement. And this confuses preview-latex. When I do C-c C-p C-b to
preview the entire buffer, Emacs reports "error in process sentinel: LaTeX
found no preview images".

Since the function is in a verbatim environment, it's not possible to do
something like \begin{docu{}ment}, which would otherwise yield the correct
output without confusing preview. For now, I wrote \begin{documen} instead
of \begin{document}, but I'll need to change that for the final version, so
if anyone knows of a better work-around, please let me know.[1]

In general, however, wouldn't it be better to just ignore the contents of
verbatim environments altogether?

Joost

Footnotes:
[1] Of course, it would be trivial to change the Elisp code so that it does
not contain the string "\\begin{document}", e.g. I could write (insert
"\\begin" "{document}"), but it would not be obvious to the reader why I
did that.

Not sure what is the reason, but the Emacs is very easy to crash in this
bundle (i.e., being exceptionally closed).  The previous version is more
robust than this version somehow.

I have used many such bundles, and some versions were more easy to crash
than others.

p.s., whether was the new RefTeX also included in this bundle?

Thanks.

Can you provide a recipe for crashing it?  Does this also happen with
the Emacs 22.1 release provided at
<URL:ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/≥?

No.

Reftex and amsrefs

A couple of years ago, Carsten Dominik posted a message on the RefTeX
newsgroup asking whether people were switching from bibtex to amsrefs.
If so, he said he would consider implementing amsrefs parsing in
RefTeX.  I gather that he didn't get enough response (or enough time) to
warrant doing this.  Now that RefTeX has become part of the AUCTeX
project, I wonder if the maintainers have any plans to implement amsrefs
parsing.  I switched from bibtex to amsrefs several years ago, and I
maintain parallel bibtex and amsrefs files so that I can use RefTeX.
This is do-able, but it would obviously be more convenient if RefTeX
could deal directly with amsrefs files.

It exited exceptionally several times during I was editing some LaTeX
documents.  It happened randomly.

>Does this also happen with the Emacs 22.1 release provided at

Let me try this first and get back to you with some feedback later.

C-h m does not display documentation about the mode

Hi,

I'm on Ubuntu 7.04 and I use the emacs package of Alexandre Vassalotti
top of Emacs CVS. Emacs version is : "GNU Emacs 23.0.0.1
(i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.10.11) of 2007-06-02 on helios".

When I press 'C-h m' on a tex file, I have the following documentation:

"
PDFLaTeX mode:
Major mode for editing files of input for LaTeX.
Makes $and } display the characters they match. Makes " insert  when it seems to be the beginning of a quotation, and '' when it appears to be the end; it inserts " only after a \. Use M-x tex-region to run LaTeX on the current region, plus the preamble copied from the top of the file (containing \documentstyle, etc.), running LaTeX under a special subshell. M-x tex-buffer does the whole buffer. M-x tex-file saves the buffer and then processes the file. M-x tex-print prints the .dvi file made by any of these. M-x tex-view previews the .dvi file made by any of these. M-x tex-bibtex-file runs bibtex on the file of the current buffer. Use M-x tex-validate-buffer to check buffer for paragraphs containing mismatched$'s or braces.

Special commands:

Uses keymap "latex-mode-map", which is not currently defined.

Except for the "PDF" in "PDFLaTeX mode" this looks like you are using
the default LaTeX mode of Emacs and not AUCTeX.

I'm not sure how this can happen, since latex-mode-map' is defined in
tex-mode.el (the file for the built-in LaTeX mode).  So once the file is
is broken or you are doing something nasty in your init file.

FWIW, in my case (CVS Emacs from trunk, CVS AUCTeX) key bindings are

Is amsrefs very popular?  Until now I haven't met anybody using it.

In any case we could add to an item about amsrefs to the to-do list.
