EmacsUI: get error "wrong-type-argument processp nil" when doing M-x cocoa5 when executable does not exist
I tried starting CoCoA-5 inside a fresh emacs by typing
M-x cocoa5, and got the error
Wrong type argument processp nil.
The actual problem is that the CoCoA-5 executable does not exist. Supposedly this is checked in
cocoa5-make-shell (see line 1286 in
cocoa5.el, but for some reason I do not get the error message which it should produce.
Investigate and rectify.

- Status changed from In Progress to Resolved
- Assignee set to John Abbott
- Target version changed from CoCoA-5.?.? to CoCoA-5.2.2
- % Done changed from 30 to 80
I have added a 1 sec sleep when the
cocoa5 script prints out an error message.
This seems not to be inconvenient for an interactive user, and works around the Emacs problem.
Perhaps the emacs code should be changed slightly anyway? But I'm too busy now.
