eshell/cat

eshell 組み込みの cat, eshell/cat

なんか EUC-JP なファイルを eshell で cat すると、 UTF-8 な端末でも文字化けせずに表示される。どっかで出力時にエンコーディングをみて勝手に文字コード変換してるような。 head とか *cat とかすると化けるのでやっぱりここみたいだ。 em-unix.el てのに定義されてるらしい。 emulate の略かな。ファイルには aliases って書いてある。 M-x find-library em-unix.el でソース読める。

emacs lisp の関数は他の関数をむちゃくちゃ使いまくるのでタグジャンプとか使わないととても読めないな。
