Is the negative prefix argument for Emacs C-- ? In the docstring for cider-ns-refresh it states using the negative prefix argument to prevent calling the cider-ns-refresh-before-fn functions. I didn't find anything in I understand the prefix argument is C-u and the double prefix argument is C-u C-u . Is the negative prefix C-- or something similar ? This pages suggests that is the case, can someone confirm I understand this correctly. Thanks.


yup, you can confirm it by calling describe-key


C-h k C--


it's also equivalent to typing C-u followed by a negative number


I was trying to use the Spacemacs equivalent, SPC - as universal argument is SPC u. It seems tha only the universal argument is remapped as C-- works. Thanks
