;;; Commentary:
;; This file implements communication with Firefox via MozRepl
;; ( It is a slightly
;; modified version of the file moz.el that comes with MozLab. To use
;; it you have to install the MozRepl addon in Firefox.
;; This file contains
;; * a major mode for direct interaction in a buffer (as with
;; telnet) with MozRepl, `inferior-moz-mode'.
;; * a minor mode for sending code portions or whole files from
;; other buffers to MozRepl, `moz-minor-mode'.
;; Assuming you want to use javascript-mode to edit Javascript files,
;; enter the following in your .emacs initialization file (from Emacs
;; integration in the help text):
;; (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.js$" . javascript-mode))
;; (autoload 'inferior-moz-mode "moz" "MozRepl Inferior Mode" t)
;; (autoload 'moz-minor-mode "moz" "MozRepl Minor Mode" t)
;; (add-hook 'javascript-mode-hook 'javascript-moz-setup)
;; (defun javascript-moz-setup () (moz-minor-mode 1))
;; Replace javascript-mode above with the name of your favorite
;; javascript mode.
;; If you got this with nXhtml the setup above is already done for
;; you.
;; *Note 1* You have to start the MozRepl server in Firefox (or
;; whatever Mozilla browser you use). From the menus do
;; Tools - MozRepl - Start
;; *Note 2* For clearness and brevity the documentation says Firefox
;; where the correct term should rather be "your Mozilla web
;; browser".
;;; Change log:
;; 2008-07-20: Lennart Borgman
;; - Add `moz-minor-mode-map'.
;; - Add `inferior-moz-insert-moz-repl'.
;; - Add `inferior-moz-mode-map'.
;; - Add doc strings to interactive functions.
;; - Make minor enhancements to documentation etc.
;; - Change Mozilla to Firefox/MozRepl for clarity and brevity.
;; - Add error handling when starting MozRepl.
;;; Code:
(require 'comint)
;; Maybe fix-me: C-c control-char are reserved for major modes. But
;; this minor mode is used in only one major mode (or one family of
;; major modes) so it complies I think ...
