becomes available. With yum, it will check for you automatically
every time you run "yum upgrade".

? That is modifying a buffer-local variable. Running that command
once at load time is wrong. That needs to be run in *every buffer*
where you want to do the line hiding. This code should really be
turned into a minor mode. See hideshow.el for an example of how to do
that. It should be at
/usr/share/xemacs/xemacs-packages/lisp/c-support/hideshow.el in your
