B19.1:bind will not bind usinf the -f option.
Wed Sep 16 13:33:00 GMT 1998
When binding keys using the -f option (filename) the command appears to
read the file which is passed but none of the bindings from the file are
Create a bind file:
$ bind -p > keybinding.out
Then edit the output file change one of the bindings. I changed the
beginning-of-line to "\e[1~" or the [HOME] key on my computer. Then I
saved the file. And tried to use the '-f' option and pass the file to bind.
$ bind -f keybinding.out
Upon trying to use the new binding nothing happened. Investigating the
binding for the function showed that the new binding was never made.
$ bind -q beginning-of-line
beginning-of-line can be invoked via "\C-a"
Using the normal bind procedure works fine.
I also noticed that if you process the command from within EMACS using the
-p option there is no output. I have not experimented with this enough to
figure out what the problem is.
