I am working on a cmake project and I would like to set a directory variable containing the correct compile command. I added this to the root directory of the project in a
;;; Directory Local Variables ;;; For more information see (info "(emacs) Directory Variables") ((nil . ((indent-tabs-mode . t) (fill-column . 80) (compile-command . "cd build && make"))))
If I enter
describe-variable for the variable
fill-column, I get the message that
This variable's value is directory-local, set by the file .... The variable is set from its default of 70 to 80 instead. However, the
compile-command variable is unchanged. Is there a bug in the file?
