There is just one small thing that is annoying, and that I hope an
expert can answer off the top of her head (and yes, I looked in the
help, the FAQ and the Wiki before asking):
aquamacs creates a backup file with the
in the same directory as the original file, for each file I edit.
This conflicts with the build system that I have to use (and cannot
simply compiles everything with a *.cxx extension in the src
subdirectory of each package.
When it tries to compile the ._Whatever.cxx file I have a problem :-)
So the question is: how can I disable this backup mechanism, or change
the name generation template so that the extension is modified? The
"classical" emacs used to post-pend a tilde to the name, which worked
Thank you in advance,
