XEmacs capability to handle multi-word abbrevs is a
nice feature. It's used for natural language
Could you please explain what you mean by multi-word abbrevs.
I think some weeks ago we discussed how the abbrevs flyspell is using
could be modified such that one would have abbrevs separated for each
language. As it turns out you can do it using minor modes, save for
mail mode, where you have use indirect buffers and a different
language mayor mode. Is this the feature you are referring to or is it
translations, as you might know. With German however a
difficulty shows up, as upcased words not only occur at
the beginning but throughout the text. This use needs
the case as defined, respecting mixed lower- and
uppercased abbrevs and expansions likewise.
AFAIS case-handling in abbrev.c for now don't foresee
Relevant part maybe from line 369
if (uccount && !lccount)
I strongly support such a request, to deal with cases in abbrev is one
what I miss most in abbrevs.
