Action groups for Emacs

Agroups (Action Groups) 2.3 for Emacs has been released and is available
for download at

http://www.interhack.net/projects/agroups

If you like to automate your day to day work-flow you might like Agroups.

Short Overview

Action Groups are groups of action entries that an Emacs user can
create, save, name and access quickly. In a general sense these actions
are any automation that a user can imagine to help with his activities.
The user instantiates these automations as action entries which are a
specific instances of some action from the current collection of
actions. Actions can be as simple as finding a commonly used file in a
buffer, to more complex like executing a previously defined keyboard
macro, to very complex like an unimaginable whopper defined by a user
created Action Template. Action Templates are an extensibility feature
of Action Groups and allows the user to easily create new actions,
Agroups supplies a useful predefined collection of actions created with
Action Templates.

A collection of action entries is called an action group. Typically
the user associates each action group with a concentrated activity such
as a project. Each entry of an action group is associated with a
specific instance of an action. A group itself is actually an entry
associated with a special action called `group’ so that a group entry
can be yet another group itself. This implies that groups can have
subgroups and subgroups can have subgroups and so on. This gives the
user structured organizational capabilities.

The Action Groups facility was designed to allow easy and fast
creation of groups and entries to help automate an Emacs user’s work.
At the same time it was designed to allow fast execution of the
entries. To this end a user can use the Emacs completion facility to
execute entries or key bindings or a combination of both.

Emacs chess

I’ll need to look at chess-pgn-read-plies to get emacs-wiki support for chess stuff.

Oooh, aptitude

aptitude has some nifty improvements! Nice break tracing.

WHEE!

CS161 4th year grades are done. The people who failed the course
failed with scores far below the passing mark and have consistently
been performing badly anyway. Congrats to Wendilyn Ong on her B.
