;;; Commentary:
;; Advises the appropriate comint function to make the IDL> prompt
;; read-only. This functionality may be available in future versions
;; of comint directy, in which case this file will be obviated.
;; New versions of IDLWAVE, documentation, and more information
;; available from:
;; =============
;; Follow the instructions in the INSTALL file of the distribution.
;; In short, put this file on your load path and add the following
;; lines to your .emacs file:
;; (add-hook 'idlwave-shell-mode-hook
;; (lambda () (require 'idlw-roprompt)))
;; ======
;; The newest version of this file can be found on the maintainers
;; web site.
;; =============
;; IDLWAVE is documented online in info format.
;; A printable version of the documentation is available from the
;; maintainers webpage (see under SOURCE)
;; ==============
;; This functionality will probably fail for some future version of
;; comint, given how explicitly
;;; Code:

&optional len)

;; Caution: in Emacs <~21.2, a new overlay gets created for each
;; prompt... in later versions, text-properties for old prompts
;; are used instead, and the original overlay is recycled. In
;; this case, we can advise snapshot-prompt to remove the
;; read-only text properties (not the overlay properties), and
;; here we test to ensure the prompt isn't in the same position as
;; the process-mark before removing the read-only stuff.
