If I set alternate_editor to an empty string, emacsclient runs "emacs --daemon" and then tries to reconnect. However, I want to run it a specific emacs executable that is not in my path. If I set alternate_editor to "/path/to/my/emacs --daemon" it runs the daemon but does not try to reconnect to it. How can I tell emacsclient that it should try to reconnect to the deamon?
Background: I want to create a bash file named emacs in /usr/local/bin that calls "emacsclient -c" so that when other applications try to start emacs they start the client instead. However, I have to make sure that this script calls /usr/bin/emacs and not itself as the alternate editor.
