• Rust mode for XEmacs?

    From Johann 'Myrkraverk' Oskarsson@21:1/5 to All on Sat Jun 13 17:38:08 2020
    Dear c.e.xemacs,

    Is there anyone using XEmacs and Rust? Apparently, the Rust project
    has a mode for Emacs 25, but that's probably not going to work with
    XEmacs out of the box.

    Is there any XEmacs specific effort out there?

    [Is there even anyone reading this newsgroup?]

    Dear c.e.xemacs, Is there anyone using XEmacs and Rust?

    Good evening,

    I had a quick lock at it. Installed the Debian XEmacs21 packages,
    downloaded rust-mode.el. It didn't load, so I started loading
    additional libraries it required, copied from my GNU Emacs tree:
    rx.el, pcase.el, macroexp.el. No luck. Had a look at
    rust-mode.el and realized it required lexical binding. Checked
    the XEmacs documentation[1]. It appears XEmacs has some features
    in that direction, but coding is required, you can't just set a
    variable to enable it. And then do the same for all the libraries
    needed---I stopped after three, could be a long daisy-chain. So
    my guess is that you have a long road ahead of you if you try to
    make it work.

    Is there any XEmacs specific effort out there?

    Is there any XEmacs effort out there? [Besides Steve Youngs'
    SXEmacs?]

    [Yes. But I took the plunge and abandoned XEmacs on Christmas Day
    2008]

    Well, in 2020 I'm still using it, both XEmacs and this newsgroup. So I
    haven't taken the plunge yet. Reason being that none of the
    alternatives seem attractive to me.

    Oh well, Rust is not that important to me yet, I can still hold off
    abandoning XEmacs for a little bit more.

    Yes. But I took the plunge and abandoned XEmacs in 2019, no special day

    EMACS now offers all I want or need, no need to stick with a dying,
    deprecated application.

    Not me.

    Yup. Still using my circa 2007 Unicode-internal fork of XEmacs 21.4 :)
    It meets my needs.
