About

I am Stephen O’Donnell and I have been working in software since about 2002 in the UK.  Most of my experience has been gained on enterprise systems for a large corporation, although I have a keen interest in Ruby, Rails, Emacs, OS X and what ever the open source flavour of the month is!

    Have you had trouble with the capital ‘C’ key in emacs after applying your ruby – rails changes to emacs? I don’t know if I’m in a phantom emacs mode but I’m not able to enter a capital ‘C’ – very strange. I’m using Ubuntu if that makes a difference.

    I’m not sure if you get my email address when I leave this comment. It is j$e$i$c$h$a$s at gmail dot com (remove the dollar signs of course).

    Thank-You

    @Jude
    Patrick comments on the article in question, saying that if you add a backslash before the C in the line you changed, the “trigger” for the line will become Control+m (C-m in emacs parlance), rather than “Capital C”-m. This means that emacs no longer tries to do anything special with your capital C, it just adds it to the buffer like everything else you type.

    Hope this helps,
    Lucas
