;;; highlight-symbol.el --- automatic and manual symbol highlighting
;; Copyright (C) 2007-2009, 2013-2016 Nikolaj Schumacher
;; Author: Nikolaj Schumacher <bugs * nschum de>

;;; Commentary:
;; Add the following to your .emacs file:
;; (require 'highlight-symbol)
;; (global-set-key [(control f3)] 'highlight-symbol)
;; (global-set-key [f3] 'highlight-symbol-next)
;; (global-set-key [(shift f3)] 'highlight-symbol-prev)
;; (global-set-key [(meta f3)] 'highlight-symbol-query-replace)
;; Use `highlight-symbol' to toggle highlighting of the symbol at
;; point throughout the current buffer. Use `highlight-symbol-mode' to keep the
;; symbol at point highlighted.
;; The functions `highlight-symbol-next', `highlight-symbol-prev',
;; `highlight-symbol-next-in-defun' and `highlight-symbol-prev-in-defun' allow
;; for cycling through the locations of any symbol at point. Use
;; `highlight-symbol-nav-mode' to enable key bindings (M-p and M-p) for
;; navigation. When `highlight-symbol-on-navigation-p' is set, highlighting is
;; triggered regardless of `highlight-symbol-idle-delay'.
;; `highlight-symbol-query-replace' can be used to replace the symbol.
;;; Change Log:
;; Added `highlight-symbol-highlight-single-occurrence'.
;; Added `highlight-symbol-ignore-list'.
;; Added `highlight-symbol-occurrence-message'.
;; 2015-04-22 (1.3)
;; Added `highlight-symbol-count'.
;; Renamed `highlight-symbol-at-point' to `highlight-symbol' because
;; hi-lock took that name.
;; Added `highlight-symbol-nav-mode'. (thanks to Sebastian Wiesner)
;; Added `highlight-symbol-foreground-color'. (thanks to rubikitch)
;; 2013-01-10 (1.2)
;; `highlight-symbol-colors' may now contain faces in addition to colors.
;; No longer depend on hi-lock (to support the latest Emacs 24).
;; Added `highlight-symbol-list-all'. (thanks to lewang)
;; Added `highlight-symbol-occur'. (thanks to Jim Turner)
;; 2009-04-13 (1.1)
;; Added `highlight-symbol-query-replace'.
;; 2009-03-19 (1.0.5)
;; Fixed `highlight-symbol-idle-delay' void variable message.
;; Fixed color repetition bug. (thanks to Hugo Schmitt)
;; 2008-05-02 (1.0.4)
;; Added `highlight-symbol-on-navigation-p' option.
;; 2008-02-26 (1.0.3)
;; Added `highlight-symbol-remove-all'.
;; 2007-09-06 (1.0.2)
;; Fixed highlighting with delay set to 0. (thanks to Stefan Persson)
;; 2007-09-05 (1.0.1)
;; Fixed completely broken temporary highlighting.
;; 2007-07-30 (1.0)
;; Keep temp highlight while jumping.
;; Replaced `highlight-symbol-faces' with `highlight-symbol-colors'.
;; Fixed dependency and Emacs 21 bug. (thanks to Gregor Gorjanc)
;; Prevent calling `highlight-symbol-at-point' on nil.
;; 2007-04-20 (0.9.1)
;; Fixed bug in `highlight-symbol-jump'. (thanks to Per Nordlöw)
;; 2007-04-06 (0.9)
;; Initial release.
