Subject: ilisp: needs eval-last-sexp
From: JBThiel <jbthiel@...>
Resent-From: JBThiel <jbthiel@...>
hi Marco, et.al.
thanks for your great work on the very useful ilisp package.
One frustrating omission is that there is no eval-last-sexp
counterpart to eval-next-sexp. I consider the former vastly more
useful and natural; 90% of the time I am at the end of an
expression (generally one I have just typed, or navigated to the
end of), and want to evaluate it. In emacs-lisp buffers this
works quite naturally -- in fact, there are TWO key bindings
devoted to this use case:
C-x C-e eval-last-sexp
Ilisp instead presents the very annoying extra step(s) of always
navving back to the beginning of the sexp.
So I strongly urge that Ilisp provide eval-last-sexp
functionality, and furthermore, elevate it to a prominent
keybinding (and menu) that tracks the standard emacs usage -- for
example, a logical choice would be C-c C-e.
ps. please forward to any ilisp-bug list as appropriate.
