Hello Sundar -
I'm not using Windows and so cannot comment on that, but I am running
XEmacs on a RHEL.
I installed ESS 5.3.5 this morning. I received the same error as you,
so I too commented out the same lines as you did. I assume the message
about delete-trailing-whitespace is no longer relevant
However, after commenting out those lines that you did, I was able to
see function arguments in a buffer in my XEmacs session without any
problems. It only appears to work in an R-mode buffer, not the actual R
session buffer. I also had to send a command to the R session first
from the R-mode buffer (i.e. C-c C-j) before the function names started
appearing, which makes sense since I understand this feature is silently
querying the running R session for the argument list. So maybe that's
all you need to do?
After that, I was able to see the arguments by typing something like
"lm(" in the R-mode buffer. However, the tooltip functionality does not
appear to be supported in XEmacs.
