;;; Commentary:
;; This package allows you to protect buffers, based upon their names, from
;; deletion.
;;
;; There are two ways you can use this package to protect buffers, either via
;; the customize interface, or via Lisp.
;;
;;; Installation:
;;
;; Simple Install:
;;
;; (require 'keep-buffers) ;; Load the package.
;; (keep-buffers-mode 1)
;;
;;
;; By default, "*scratch*" is protected and erased when killed, "*Messages*"
;; is never killed or erased. You can customize easily using elisp:
;;
;; ;; protect all buffers starting with "*scratch"
;; (push '("\\`*scratch" . erase) keep-buffers-protected-list)
;;
;;
;; Customize:
;;
;; M-x customize-group
;; keep-buffers
;;
;;; History:
;;
;; Version 1.0 -- Initial version.
;;
;; Version 1.1 -- Added the customize entries.
;;
;; Version 1.2 -- Added the keep-buffers-erase-on-kill function.
;;
;; Version 1.3 -- (Le Wang)
;;
;; * erased lots of useless helper functions. people are
;; either going to use customize or elisp.
;;
;; * made `keep-buffers-protected-list' an alist so each
;; buffer can specify whether it should be erased.
;;
;; * removed redundant `find-in-list' see `member'
;;
;; Version 1.4 -- (Le Wang)
;;
;; * changed into prope global minor mode
;;
;;
;;; Code:
(eval-when-compile
(require 'cl))
(define-minor-mode keep-buffers-mode
"when active, killing protected buffers results in burying them instead.
Some may also be erased, which is undo-able."

not nil then the matching buffer is erased then buried.
