If I go to the end of my
.emacs file, and execute
M-:, I get the following message:
37018 (#o110232, #x909a, ?邚)
Why does emacs feel the need to tell me what unicode character corresponds to the current position in the buffer?
The issue for me is that on OS X 10.9.3, emacs 126.96.36.199,
point is sometimes very noticeably slow when I invoke it interactively, and I think it may be because it takes some time to look up the character, #x909a in this case. I am not sure how to debug this.
