I am attempting to use Directory-Variables in order to set the flycheck-gcc-language-standard variable. I used: M-x add-dir-local-variable RET c++-mode RET flycheck-gcc-language-standard RET "c++11" to create the .dir-local.el file in the project root directory. Which results in the following code:
((c++-mode (flycheck-gcc-language-standard . "c++11")))
the above creates a warning that this is a "malformed function". I've tried several variations: without quotes, c++0x instead of c++11, among others. Flycheck.el doesn't list what are acceptable variables. I'm stuck.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
If it helps below is the debugger output:
Debugger entered--Lisp error:
(invalid-function (c++-mode (flycheck-gcc-language-standard . c++11)))
((c++-mode (flycheck-gcc-language-standard . c++11)))
eval(((c++-mode (flycheck-gcc-language-standard . c++11))) nil)
call-interactively(eval-last-sexp nil nil)
It seems to me that I'm missing something but I don't know it might be. I new to emacs.
