Description Ivan Zakharyaschev 2009-03-18 18:41:41 MSK

eshell (M-x eshell) is convenient in using its own equivalents of some programs, showing their output in special buffers (e.g., man, locate, grep); for example, man:

~/tmp/test-git $ man stat
~/tmp/test-git $ 

in this example, the manpage was shown in a separate buffer. This feature could be extended to info -- the Emacs' internal nice info-reader should be used for calls to info. Now:

~/tmp/test-git $ info stat
info: Terminal type `dumb' is not smart enough to run Info.
~/tmp/test-git $ 

Expected: the internal reader in a separate buffer is used.

В 4.0/branch исправления не будут вноситься уже технически (заглушена очередь на сборку), поэтому прошу ошибки, актуальные для sisyphus/p7/t7, перевесить на текущие ветки или сизиф.
