What is it?
fmf.el provides the user the ability to open multiple files (i.e. *.C)
with one call to find-multiple-files.
It is distributed under the GNU General Public License.
Why was it written?
fmf.el was written because a dear friend and old college roommate
(Andrew Nuxoll) asked me too. It was written in a time long ago before
the newer emacsen that provide this functionality via the
find-file-wildcards variable existed.
fmf.el is no longer being actively maintained. I provide it here
simply so that those of you stuck on an older emacs can still use it.
- The find-multiple-files function. I recommend binding this to
^X^F, replacing find-file.
- No less than 5 (count 'em... FIVE) ways to expand the wildcard
into a file list. Only 4 are tried... the fifth is there 'just in
- Tested on GNU Emacs (including NT Emacs).
- May not work on newer versions of emacs since this code is
no longer being maintained. Newer versions of emacs have this
functionality built in.
The download links are below. Usage instructions are at the top of
the file. I highly suggest you read all the comments at the top of the
file so that you fully understand all of fmf's features.
