For crying out loud, one does not have to look in the "sources of this" package or use "Google" searches. The package has documentation. The documentation is available in the usual places (Info) and also in the menus of the package (like in the LaTeX menu). The menus of the package also contain an entry for submitting bug reports. Perhaps some minimal trust in the package authors would be in order. > Thanks, I might consider this.

How about reading the documentation of load-path? load-path is a variable defined in ‘C source code’. Its value is [...] Initialized during startup as described in Info node ‘(elisp)Library Search’. Use ‘directory-file-name’ when adding items to this path. However, Lisp programs that process this list should tolerate directories both with and without trailing slashes. I repeat: However, Lisp programs that process this list should tolerate directories both with and without trailing slashes. And there is good reason for that: XEmacs used to do things differently (and wasn't tolerant about it as opposed to Emacs if I remember correctly) and thus many packages used that behavior. XEmacs may be mostly history, but many packages are historic as well. It's good to remind AUCTeX that it can adapt to standard behavior now, but as a package manager, your code _certainly_ should adhere to the instructions in load-path documentation. -- David Kastrup _______________________________________________ bug-auctex mailing list email@example.com https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/bug-auctex
