;;; Commentary:
;; This code adds a toolbar to ESS modes for editing R and S code.
;; Support can be added for other modes (e.g. STATA), just ask!
;; This code is experimental, and runs best on Emacs 21 and XEmacs
;; 21. It has been tested only on Linux machines. All feedback
;; appreciated.
;; If your emacs can support images, the ESS toolbar should be loaded.
;; If you see a toolbar, but no icons, check out the value of
;; ess-icon-directory.
;; The toolbar can be customized in several ways. To see options, do:
;; M-x customize-group RET ess-toolbar RET
;; If you change any of the variables, you _may_ need to restart Emacs
;; to see any effect. See also the documentation for ess-toolbar-items
;; if you wish to change its value.
;;; Technical issues.
;; Emacs vs XEmacs.
;; Of course, Emacs and XEmacs have different interfaces and handle
;; the toolbars in different ways. The code here is rough, but
;; hopefully soon a compatibility toolbar library will be released
;; that will make the toolbar code more portable. So, for now the
;; code should be regarded as proof of concept.
;; 2009-03-16: toolbar code in Emacs 23 has changed slightly to 22,
;; and presumably once Emacs 22 is no longer supported, this code can
;; be cleaned up a bit (i.e. no need to set load-path.)
