I've been using acme from plan9port on linux for quite a while now,
but just discovered acme-sac and am excited about the possibility of
using it as my development editor at work.
I'm trying to figure out how to customize the startup of acme a little
bit. I have successfully changed the size of the window by setting
EMU=-gXsizexYsize, although when I set it to EMU=-g2500x1540 it starts
at a smaller size, but switches to the desired size when I click the
Windows Maximize button.
In P9P I startup acme in one of 2 ways. First 'acme -a -r -f ... -
F ... -c 3 <files>" starts up acme in with my desired fonts, with 3
columns, and with a "standard" set of files and directories visible.
Second "acme -a -r -l $HOME/acme.dump" starts up acme restoring its
state from my last saved state.
I have tried to get acme-sac to start acme with different command-line
parameters (e.g. -c 3), but have been unsuccessful. Can anyone give
me any hints or suggestions for where to look to figure out how to
In P9P acme, the -r command-line option specifies that the behavior of
mouse buttons 1 and 3 in the scrollbar should be swapped. The makes
it easier to use acme along with other applications. Does acme-sac
have a similar feature? If not, I may try to add it.
thanks for your help,
