Is there an easy way to use
thing-at-point to initialize the contents of an
interactive string reading?
I have a function the looks something like this:
(defun foo (string) (interactive "sString:") ;; does something with string )
But I'd really like it if when I did
M-x foo, that it filled the minibuffer with the
thing-at-point. In this case
Is the only way to get that to use an explicit list argument to
interactive, something like:
(defun foo (string) (interactive (list (read-from-minibuffer "String:" ;; prompt (thing-at-point 'word) ;; initial value ) ) ) ; interactive ;; does something with string )
And if I do so, do my own history list etc?
