No. Emacs is not a clone of vi. It doesn't support passing the mode on
the command line in the same way. That's what I was trying to say with
The closest analogue would be something like
emacs --file %s --funcall claws-external-mode
but there are complications, particularly when one uses the emacs
server. That's why I prefer the local variables trick instead.
Besides, claws-external-mode is something I wrote and haven't shared
with anyone (yet).
In summary, I don't think this is something that should be preset by
Claws. There are too many different users, editors, and options.
Please *no* private copies of mailing list or newsgroup messages.
