hungry-delete.el - hungry delete minor mode

Copyright (C) 2009-2014 Nathaniel Flath flat0103@gmail.com

Version: 1.0

Commentary

This package implements hungry deletion, meaning that deleting a whitespace character will delete all whitespace until the next non-whitespace character.

cc-mode implements hungry deletion for its programming modes. This package borrows its implementation in a minor mode, so that hungry deletion can be used in all modes.

The function global-hungry-delete-mode will turn on hungry-delete-mode in all buffers.

Installation

To use this mode, just put the following in your init.el:

(require 'hungry-delete)
(global-hungry-delete-mode)

hungry-ish deletion

Some users mght find hungry-delete's default behavior too aggressive, since it will often merge the words before and after the deletion point. This behavior can be changed by setting the hungry-delete-join-reluctantly flag to true. This will cause the hungry deletion functions to leave words seperated by a single space if they would have been joined, unless the words were separated by just one space to begin with

As an example, suppose you're in the following state.

;; State A
foo        bar
           ^

Pressing backspace with hungry-delete-join-reluctantly as nil (the default) will land you here

;; State B
foobar
   ^

Whereas if hungry-delete-join-reluctantlyis enabled, you'll end up here

;; State C
foo bar
    ^

whereupon you can press backspace again to get to state B
