Editing text file using Emacs will make Emacs make a companion file for its own purpose.
For example, after first editing a file called
test.c, Emacs will leave a file called
test.c~ in the same directory. This can be a little annoying when visualizing all files cluttered with the
~ files in a console
Any way to get rid of seeing these
~ files in a console, like the Gnome Terminal?
Thanks to @don_crisst's comment below:
ls -B to hide the ~ files when displaying file names. The command line switches,
--ignore-backups, do not list implied entries ending with ~.
