;;; Commentary:
;; This package provides one entry point, compare-windows. It compares
;; text starting from point in two adjacent windows, advancing point
;; until it finds a difference. Option variables permit you to ignore
;; whitespace differences, or case differences, or both.
;;; Code:

"Regexp or function that defines whitespace sequences for `compare-windows'.
That command optionally ignores changes in whitespace.
The value of `compare-windows-whitespace' is normally a regexp, but it
can also be a function. The function's job is to categorize any
whitespace around (including before) point; it should also advance
past any whitespace. The function is called in each window, with
point at the current scanning point. It gets one argument, the point
where \\[compare-windows] was originally called; it should not look at
any text before that point.
If the function returns the same value for both windows, then the
whitespace is considered to match, and is skipped."

"Function or regexp that is used to synchronize points in two
windows if before calling `compare-windows' points are located
on mismatched positions.
The value of `compare-windows-sync' can be a function. The
function's job is to advance points in both windows to the next
matching text. If the value of `compare-windows-sync' is a
regexp, then points in both windows are advanced to the next
occurrence of this regexp.
The current default value is the general function
`compare-windows-sync-default-function' that is able to
synchronize points by using quadratic algorithm to find the first
matching 32-character string in two windows.
The other useful values of this variable could be such functions
as `forward-word', `forward-sentence', `forward-paragraph', or a
regexp containing some field separator or a newline, depending on
the nature of the difference units separator. The variable can
be made buffer-local.
If the value of this variable is `nil' (option \"No sync\"), then
no synchronization is performed, and the function `ding' is called
to beep or flash the screen when points are mismatched."

Compares the text starting at point in each window,

This command pushes the mark in each window

the mark is pushed twice in that buffer:
first in the other window, then in the selected window.
A prefix arg means reverse the value of variable
`compare-ignore-whitespace'. If `compare-ignore-whitespace' is
nil, then a prefix arg means ignore changes in whitespace. If
`compare-ignore-whitespace' is non-nil, then a prefix arg means
don't ignore changes in whitespace. The variable
`compare-windows-whitespace' controls how whitespace is skipped.

If `compare-windows-sync' is non-nil, then successive calls of
this command work in interlaced mode:
on first call it advances points to the next difference,
on second call it synchronizes points by skipping the difference,
on third call it again advances points to the next difference and so on."
