;;; Commentary:
;; This package provides eshell integration for the ECB. This basically allows
;; you to jump to the eshell in the compilation window, sync up the current
;; eshell with the current ECB buffer and run commands without getting in the
;; way.
;; It provides the following features:
;; - ability to jump to the eshell buffer within the compilation window ( C-.e )
;; If the eshell isn't running it will be started
;; - expands the compilation window when you run commands. So for example it
;; allows you to view the eshell in minimized mode and then when you run 'ls'
;; the window automatically expands.
;; - Synchronizes the current directory of the eshell with the current buffer
;; of the either the edit-window or the ecb-windows.
;; - Provides smart window layout of the eshell buffer. This makes sure that
;; the eshell is taking up the exact amount of space and that nothing is
;; hidden.
;; The goal is to make it easy to jump to a command prompt to run OS level
;; commands.
;; If you enjoy this software, please consider a donation to the EFF

;;; History:
;; For the ChangeLog of this file see the CVS-repository. For a complete
;; history of the ECB-package see the file NEWS.
;;; Design:
;; Syncing the current buffer with the eshell is done two ways. If the buffer
;; is visible in a window, we always resync. If it is not visible then
;; ecb-eshell-goto-eshell will sync up when the user goes to the eshell
;; buffer.
;; Integrating of eshell is mostly done by advicing the command `eshell' which
;; uses the mechanism of the display-buffer (adviced version).
