The new GNU Emacs and semantic.cache

with one comment

How can i prevent contaminating each directory with a file semantic-cache?
Set semanticdb-default-save-directory to a directory, by putting the following in your emacs init file (usually .emacs in your home directory):

(setq semanticdb-default-save-directory "~/.semantic")
(replace ~/.semantic with a different directory, if you wish.)

  1. To avoid errors like:
    1. The directory you selected isn’t getting filled with semantic.cache files
    2. Semantic complains on exit (or raises a signal — debug it)
    3. (wrong-type-argument arrayp semanticdb-project-database-file)
    You must make sure that your semanticdb directory ends in a slash! (/).
