I checked now, string mutation works.

But what about the other warnings? Is the "main: not defined" warning due to my racket version?

The second warning (./ line 40: [: too many arguments) disappears if I change (in

    if [ $repl = '#t' ]

    if [ "$repl" = '#t' ]

Yes, I wondered what to do about that and who if anyone cared about all those features. Then I forgot :/ I'll create a more bare-bones but working script today.

Edit 14 minutes later: Done: Do let us know if you have any other problems. (I've only tested the script on Mac at the moment.)

Now from the command line I don't get any warnings.

However, running arc in emacs (I use arc.el and arc-inferior.el) gives an error:

    rlwrap: error: My terminal reports width=0 (is it emacs?)  I can't handle this, sorry!
rlwrap doesn't work in emacs and this IMO is the reason the previous script had the --no-rl option.

Ah, I see. Ok, I'll bring that back.

Thanks for explaining the reason for that flag.

Edit 15 minutes later: I've made the flag to disable rlwrap '-n' like in the master branch.

(I didn't pick the original flag, so I'm not attached to that name. I can change it if you want, I just want both branches to be consistent. I also renamed the script to 'arc' like in the master branch, just to make my life easier. I'll update the instructions at next.)

Now it works both from the command line and from emacs.

It's ok for me that the the flag is -n.

I think that the arc script was named "" because the folder which is used by the news server is "arc", and it would conflict. We can either take back the "" name or change the news server's directory to something else, perhaps "www" like in the master branch.

Edit: We should also change the flag of the default program name in inferior-arc.el (line 95):

    (defvar arc-program-name "arc --no-rl"

    (defvar arc-program-name "arc -n"

Thanks for those comments!

Yeah you're right. I'm going to switch to everywhere.

Edit 15 minutes later: all done, though the commit histories are a mess. Let me know if I missed renaming the script in any places!

"Thanks for those comments!"

You're welcome.

I'll certainly tell you if I find some references to the old "arc" name.
