When running a process from a timer, this message is printed a lot.

Is there a way to suppress the message entirely?

For reference see: https://emacs.stackexchange.com/a/50681/2418


From what I can tell the answer is no.

However, this can be worked around (albeit a hack).

  • Disable logging.
  • Run the operation which causes the message.
  • Clear the message.
  • Enable logging again.

    There is also inhibit-message (still a hack, just slightly more concise). – npostavs May 26 at 14:03

    This happens not to work in this case, I think because the message call is from C code. – ideasman42 May 26 at 14:09

    Hmm, I thought the point of inhibit-message is that it should work on C code, unlike advising message which doesn't. Although looking at its docstring, I notice inhibit-message doesn't inhibit logging, just the display. So if you want to keep the log clear too, it's not really that much more concise. – npostavs May 26 at 14:32
