There's a strange behavior that the recent Emacs calls a
FUNCTION interactively when the command line arguments
are given. How to reproduce it is:
Fill the ~/.emacs file only with the following function:
(defun testing (&optional str)
(interactive (list (read-string "What? ")))
(insert (format "%s\n%s\n"
(setq command-line-args-left nil)))))
Type the following command in the terminal emulator:
emacs -f testing foo bar baz
Emacs 21.3 does only insertion of text in the *scratch* buffer,
but 21.3.50 prompts user for a string. Is it a bug or a feature?
Because of this behavior, I can't use the following:
emacs -f w3m http://some.news.site/daily-news.html&
Where w3m is yet another web browser command which has the
interactive spec for prompting a url.
