/* When run with an argument, i treats it as a command line, and pipes
command stdin, stdout and stderr to its own respective streams. How
silly it should sound, but windowed program in Win32 cannot do output
to the console from which it has been started, and should be run using
this utility.

This utility is for running [tx]emacs as part of make process so that
its output goes to the same console as the rest of the make output
does.  It can be used also when xemacs should be run as a batch
command ina script, especially when its standart output should be
obtained programmatically. */

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
