3/15    When is it preferred to countersteer vs. leaning?  -newbie

3/16    Is there a way to change the background and foreground color of xemacs
        after it has started?  I know I can do "xemacs -bg black -fg white"
        but I can't seem to do it after the program started.  apropos on
        background doesn't show me anything.
        \_ I don't know, but why would you want to do this?
                \_ Really fast to make it flash, cool like.
        \_ I don't know about xemacs, but in emacs you can do
           (set-background-color "black") and (set-foreground-color "white")
           in your .emacs file or wherever else you put your elisp. -emin

3/16    I wrote a (trivial) program that converts between line termination
        of PC or Mac and Unix.  I want to to use this program with CVS so
        that the repository sees a file with the unix convention although
        the checked out copy always use some other convention.  How can I
        do it automatically and transparently for files with certain
        extensions?  Ok tnx.
        \-emacs hooks. ok bye.
        \_ I'm pretty new to cvs, but i think what you want to do is
           cvs co CVSROOT, edit the cvswrappers file and put something
                 *.[tT][xX][tT] -t /path/to/yourprogram
                 *.[sS][tT] -t /bin/to/yourprogram
