Emacs: File Size Threshold May 1, 2011 at 8:34 pm

I use Emacs to open up WAR files often. Since these files are often large, Emacs usually pops up a confirmation dialog which was cramping my style. Turns out Emacs maintains a threshold of file size for this. The default value is about 10 MB. The variable “large-file-warning-threshold” is customizable. Note that you shouldn’t set the file size threshold to be larger than buffer size.

I set mine to 100 MB.

;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
'(blink-cursor-mode nil)
'(inhibit-startup-screen t)
'(large-file-warning-threshold 100000000)

  2. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
