i am new to both cygwin/X and vc-clearcase. i am trying to integrate vc-clearcase with emacs 22.1 under cygwin/X. i followed your instructions in INSTALL file and had problems in generating byte-code for the vc-clearcase.el and ucm.el files. find below, the traces when i tried to compile those .el files.
$ emacs -batch -f batch-byte-compile vc-clearcase.el
vc-clearcase.el:397:8:Warning: `process-kill-without-query' is an obsolete
function (as of Emacs 22.1); use `process-query-on-exit-flag' or
$ emacs -batch -f batch-byte-compile ucm.el
In toplevel form:
ucm.el:36:1:Error: Timeout waiting for cleartool to start
i understood that vc-clearcase.el compiled fine, but ucm.el failed to do so. with my little knowledge of elisp, i could grasp from the code that:
;; on systems other than windows-nt, cleartool will print a prompt
;; when it starts up and tq will complain about it. In these cases,
;; we wait until the prompt is printed, and start the tq after that.
(with-timeout (5 (error "Timeout waiting for cleartool to start"))
now, how to go about the same?
