OK, I was scratching my head about this on and off for a couple of days
(Fortran is supported by imenu, but imenu had stopped working for me, so
it obviously wasn't an ECB problem...) But last night I managed to crash
my X server (for totally unrelated reasons), so was forced to restart my
XEmacs. And lo! everything works perfectly now.
So, I've no idea what the problem was but it seems to have been
transient and was almost certainly not directly related to ECB. I
_thought_ I had restarted xemacs after upgrading all my packages but
maybe I hadn't. In which case, it's amazing anything worked at all :)
Anyway, many thanks for ECB - it's a wonderful tool. However, one thing
I'm not too keen on in the new version is that the history buffer gets
sorted alphabetically. This makes it hard to work with lots of files
because I have to remember what each one is _called_ in order to find it
in the History buffer and then scroll down to find it, which is slower
than using 'C-x b' and tab-completion. The older version used to sort
the History buffer _historically_ which was great - at any one time I
will be jumping between a handful of files and these would all be at the
top of my History list where I can easily see them.
I had a quick look at the documentation but I couldn't see an easy way
to revert back to the previous behaviour. I already have
ecb-history-menu-sorter set to nil. Is there any way to do it?
