### [ESS] ess problems on xemacs 21.4.19 on AIX

Hello ess-help.

I have installed xemacs-21.4.19 on AIX (5.2 and 5.3) with
xemacs-sumo-2005-12-08.tar.bz2 tarball and
xemacs-mule-2005-12-08.tar.bz2.

ess-5.2.7 is present in the xemacs tarball, but when I try to run stata
o SAS process I get the following error:

Symbol's value as variable is void: inferior-ess-font-lock-keywords

(Note that with xemacs -nw (terminal mode) the problem does not arise. I
also notice that running, for example R, the other processes (stata or
SAS) start but I would like to avoid this trick.)

Also installing earlier versions of ess the problem still remains.

Then I have installed xemacs-21.4.19 with previous version of tarballs
(xemacs-sumo-2005-03-07.tar.bz2 tarball and
xemacs-mule-2005-03-07.tar.bz2).

ess-5.2.3 is present in the xemacs tarball, and stata or SAS process run
correctly.

At this point,  I installed ess-5.2.12 but when I start xemacs I get the
following error:

Symbol's function definition is void: ess-s-versions-create

I also tried ess-5.2.11 and the problem remains.

### [ESS] folding/outlining

Hi,

I've spent some time looking for a method to outline code while using ESS,
and the allout package was suggested on a recent thread here.  I had
trouble understanding the documentation in the customization group for
allout, so I'd appreciate some help setting it up to work with ESS.  I
tried:

(require 'allout)

and did M-x outline-hide-bodies while in a few files (R source and elisp
files), but got the message "Wrong type argument: stringp, nil".  I'm
using GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
of 2005-10-02 on trouble, modified by Debian, and ess 5.2.11.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

--

### [ESS] jumping to a function's definition

Hi, I've recently switched to using Emacs and ESS.

When I write R scripts that contain multiple functions, I note that I
can get a a list of the available functions from the Imenu toolbar.

Is there a way I can access this functionality from the keyboard? That
is, if my cursor is on a function name (and it is also defined in the
current file or maybe in a .R file in the current directory) and I do
some combination of keys, say C-c b, I would be able to jump to the
function definition.

A little searching shows that I could do M-. to jump to functions, but I
think it's more oriented towards C/C++ as it requires the use of a TAGS
file.

Any pointers would be appreciated

A bug in the code is worth two in the documentation.

### Re: [ESS] jumping to a function's definition

You can create a TAGS file for use with R/S code.

Here, for example, is the beginning of my TAGS file for use
with the resample library:

resample/funs/First.q,31
.First.lib <-.First.lib3,122

resample/funs/abc.q,159
limits.abc _limits.abc11,394
limits.abc.default <-limits.abc.default30,926
limits.abc.resamp _limits.abc.resamp451,15519
print.abc _print.abc489,16791

I'll attach two files; one a script for updating the TAGS file,
and the other containing regular expressions for use in updating.

For my records:
beans/code/discreteChoice/updateTAGS
bootstrap/code/updateTAGSregexp

### Re: [ESS] jumping to a function's definition

The interface that I'd be interested in seeing would be an "iswitchb"
approach to jumping to functions in source code.  That would make
sense to me.

Thomas Gerds had a nice iswitch-r that completed R objects; I've got
on my to-do list a generalization of it (it's currently xemacs only).

I believe that ECB (Emacs Code Browser, the reason I added the imenu
stuff) might have a means of navigation via keymaps.  "Might".  It's
worth checking.

You should be able to use keystrokes to navigate the menu pull-downs,
but that is an ugly hack.

### Re: [ESS] ESS 5.2.12 released

Yes. Just try to do M-x R to launch one R session, and following by M-x
R again, which will hang. This only happens in cygwin xemacs.

Nope.  But I'm running really old versions of everything.  Is it
completely reproducbile?

Would be interested to see the iswitch-r code!  (Music to my ears, as
the iswitchb author!)  Someone took iswitchb and generalised it into
ido.el (distributed in Emacs 22) -- that any use to you?

### [ESS] Startup error on XEmacs with ESS 2.5.11 (error "Stack overflow in regexp matcher")

Hi,

I am on XEmacs 21.4.6 and ESS 5.2.11.
This morning when I fire up XEmacs, I encounter an error

Stack overflow in regexp matcher"

Switching on the -debug-init option
I get the more detailed error message shown below.

I tried to upgrade to 5.2.12 but that seems to produce a different
error message (again see below for details).

The only thing that has happened to my pc is that I was upgraded to
Office 2003 last night but I dont think that should make a difference, should it?

Fiddling with my init.el file the error is caused when I start R with the line "(R)".
The same error occurs if I try to start R manually within XEmacs.

I would like to address the 5.2.11 error (Stack overflow in regexp matcher)
as this is the version of ESS that was working correctly previously.
