Re: Tutorial: Emacs for Programmers

Several small flaws in the article. The local emacs variables need to be at the end of the source. Or at least for Xemacs they do, they didn't work when in the middle of my code.

/* Local Variables: */

/* mode: C */

/* compile-command: "cd ..; make -k" */

/* End: */

The above works for my projects where the source lives 1 directory below the Makefile.

The compile key bindings are missing some backslashes before the C

;; Save and Compile

;; Uses the compile-command variable which can be set in the source

(defun my-save-and-compile ()

(interactive "")

(save-buffer 0)

(compile compile-command)

)

(define-key c-mode-map "C-cC-c" 'my-save-and-compile)

The above uses the compile-command set by the source. If none has been set then make -k is the system default.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
