I'm trying to work out some things that modify values defined by
"auto-autoloads.elc". If I go to the origin source and modify &
recompile it, it appears I've not accomplished the change because the
value that gets loaded is the one from auto-autoloads.
I'm guessing this winds up in the dumped code (?)
Does that mean I need to do a "temacs" install and dump in order to
There's a big sign at the head of "auto-autoloads.el" saying "DO NOT
EDIT THIS FILE" --
so y'all will understand why I haven't jumped right in and done so.
Presumably, what is needed is to go back and run the process that scours
the "auto-autoloads" material out of the several sources. And that
would be, what? I can see that it consists of definitions grabbed out
of their originating library, so it shouldn't be impossible to just
recopy the changed lisp. But I'm gun shy in the face of that warning.
I'm really really trying to avoid having to do a complete rebuild. So
far my batting average for recompiles is zero!
