I want to use
async-shell-command to run a
.bat file on Windows.
Reading the function documentation it says:
(defun async-shell-command (command &optional output-buffer error-buffer) "Execute string COMMAND asynchronously in background. ... To run COMMAND without displaying the output in a window you can configure `display-buffer-alist' to use the action `display-buffer-no-window' for the buffer `*Async Shell Command*'.
Where I mark in bold what I want to achieve: run COMMAND without displaying the output.
So, I guess I need to configure
display-buffer-alist variable to use
display-buffer-no-window action for
*Async Shell Command* buffer. It seems simple...
(defcustom display-buffer-alist nil "Alist of conditional actions for `display-buffer'. This is a list of elements (CONDITION . ACTION), where: CONDITION is either a regexp matching buffer names, or a function that takes two arguments - a buffer name and the ACTION argument of `display-buffer' - and returns a boolean. ACTION is a cons cell (FUNCTION . ALIST), where FUNCTION is a function or a list of functions. Each such function should accept two arguments: a buffer to display and an alist of the same form as ALIST. See `display-buffer' for details.
Well... this is where my head starts to get lost on Emacs/Elisp ecosystem.
Should I do something like this (where I do not know what to put on ???):
(add-to-list 'display-buffer-alist '("*Async Shell Command*" . (display-buffer-no-window . ???)) )
Any help/hints will be appreciated.
