;; By: dradams
;; Update #: 213
;; URL:
;; Doc URL:
;; Doc URL:
;; Keywords: internal, window
;; Compatibility: GNU Emacs: 20.x, 21.x, 22.x, 23.x, 24.x, 25.x
;; Features that might be required by this library:
;; None
;;; Commentary:
;; Extensions to `window.el'.
;; ***** NOTE: The following functions defined in `window.el' have
;; `count-windows' -
;; Only use arg MINIBUF if current frame has a minibuffer.
;; `special-display-popup-frame' (Emacs 24+) - Fit the frame.
;; `quit-window' - Call `delete-window' inside `condition-case'.
;; This file should be loaded after loading the standard GNU file
;; `window.el'. So, in your `~/.emacs' file, do this:
;; (eval-after-load "window" '(require 'window+))
;;; Change Log:
;; 2014/10/25 dadams
;; special-display-popup-frame: Protect set-window-prev-buffers with fboundp.
;; 2014/02/16 dadams
;; special-display-popup-frame:
;; Use vanilla Emacs 24 code for display-buffer-record-window,
;; set-window-buffer, etc. Fixes Emacs bug #16768.
;; 2012/10/15 dadams
;; Do not redefine quit-window for Emacs 24+, so do not delete frame for NEWS.
;; Thx to Martin Rudalics.
;; 2012/09/10 dadams
;; special-display-popup-frame: Protect fit-frame call with fboundp.
;; 2012/08/31 dadams
;; special-display-popup-frame:
;; save-selected-window -> save-window-excursion -
;; fixes bug that moved point to bob when use pp-eval-last-sexp.
;; 2012/08/25 dadams
;; special-display-popup-frame:
;; Put back missing (set-window-buffer window buffer) - removed accidentally.
;; Call fit-frame with the buffer's WINDOW selected. Inhibit before then.
;; 2012/08/11 dadams
;; special-display-popup-frame:
;; Adapt redefinition for all Emacs versions.
;; Do not raise or fit frame if (car ARGS) is a FUNCTION. Make it do the work.
;; 2012/08/10 dadams
;; special-display-popup-frame: Updated for latest Emacs 24.
;; 2011/06/29 dadams
;; Added: special-display-popup-frame (for Emacs 24+).
;; Require fit-frame.el (for Emacs 24+).
;; 2011/01/04 dadams
;; Added autoload cookie for command quit-window.
;; 2008/02/27 dadams
;; Added redefinition of quit-window.
;; 1996/01/25 dadams
;; count-windows: Returned to original meaning of arg,
;; but only use arg ifframe has a minibuffer.
