- Collapsing undo history 2 answers
Consider this toy example:
(defun foo () (interactive) (replace-string "a" "A" nil (region-beginning) (region-end) nil) (replace-string "r" "R" nil (region-beginning) (region-end) nil) ) (global-set-key (kbd "C-c F") 'foo)
foo replaces all a's and r's with A's and R's, respectively. If one wants to undo it, however, a single undo (
C-x u) isn't be enough; two are required.
I'm looking for a way to define
foo such that only one
C-x u is enough to undo everything it does.
Since the code above is only an example, I'm looking for solutions that do not depend on the specifics of
replace-string. IOW, the solution should work for any
foo of the form
(defun foo () (interactive) ;; ;; body ;; )
