;;; Commentary:
;; This extension is useful when you want save window configuration

;; window layout.
;;; Dependencies:
;; no extra libraries is required
;; Put this file into your load-path and the following into your ~/.emacs:
;; (require 'windata)
;; You can use desktop to save window configuration between different
;; session:
;; (require 'desktop)
;; (add-to-list 'desktop-globals-to-save 'windata-named-winconf)
