Hi.

I am watcing the mailing list of AucTeX, that has
considerable amount of development. It came to our
attention that the only away to set the editor for
using with Yap is actually opening it and changing
things in dialogs.

This is annoying, specially in a "multi user" computer.
In my house, for instance, my wife uses TeXniccenter
with Yap and I use gnu emacs.

Could you add the feature following feature: that the
editor for yap to use with inverse seach (or view
source) could also be specified by command line,
overriding the one set in the options dialogue.

This feature could easy the pain for those that use
emacs, because AucTeX can more easily decide the editor
command line, better than Yap does. Thanks.

Miguel.

    using environment variables is another possibility in this
    case

    There have been more than 5 years from this feature request...

    With the editor given by command line, yap would be more friendly to Emacs.

    Cheers.

    Miguel.
