;;; Commentary:
;; A minor mode: "Highlight Changes mode".
;; When Highlight Changes mode is enabled changes to the buffer are
;; recorded with a text property. Normally these ranges of text are
;; displayed in a distinctive face. However, sometimes it is
;; desirable to temporarily not see these changes. Instead of
;; disabling Highlight Changes mode (which would remove the text property)
;; use the command highlight-changes-visible-mode.
;; Two faces are supported: one for changed or inserted text and
;; another for the first character after text has been deleted.
;; When Highlight Changes mode is on (even if changes are not visible)
;; you can go to the next or previous change with
;; `highlight-changes-next-change' or `highlight-changes-previous-change'.
;; Command highlight-compare-with-file shows changes in this file
;; compared with another file (by default the previous version of the
;; file).
;; The command highlight-compare-buffers compares two buffers by
;; highlighting their differences.
;; You can "age" different sets of changes by using
;; `highlight-changes-rotate-faces'. This rotates through a series
;; of different faces, so you can distinguish "new" changes from "older"
;; changes. You can customize these "rotated" faces in two ways. You can
;; either explicitly define each face by customizing
;; `highlight-changes-face-list'. If, however, the faces differ from
;; `highlight-changes-face' only in the foreground color, you can simply set
;; `highlight-changes-colors'. If `highlight-changes-face-list' is nil when
;; the faces are required they will be constructed from
;; `highlight-changes-colors'.
;; You can automatically rotate faces when the buffer is saved;
;; see function `highlight-changes-rotate-faces' for how to do this.
;; The hook `highlight-changes-mode-hook' is called when
;; Highlight Changes mode is turned on or off.
;; When it called, variable `highlight-changes-mode' has been updated
;; to the new value.
;; Example usage:
;; (defun my-highlight-changes-mode-hook ()
;; (if highlight-changes-mode
;; (add-hook 'write-file-functions 'highlight-changes-rotate-faces nil t)
;; (remove-hook 'write-file-functions 'highlight-changes-rotate-faces t)
;; ))
;; Automatically enabling Highlight Changes mode
;; Normally, Highlight Changes mode is turned on explicitly in a buffer.
;; If you prefer to have it automatically invoked you can do it as
;; follows.
;; 1. Most modes have a major-hook, typically called MODE-hook. You
;; can use `add-hook' to call `highlight-changes-mode'.
;; Example:
;; (add-hook 'c-mode-hook 'highlight-changes-mode)
;; However, this cannot be done for Fundamental mode for there is no
;; such hook.
;; 2. You can use the function `global-highlight-changes-mode'
;; This function, which is fashioned after the way `global-font-lock' works,
;; toggles on or off global Highlight Changes mode. When activated, it turns
;; on Highlight Changes mode in all "suitable" existing buffers and will turn
;; it on in new "suitable" buffers to be created.
;; A buffer's "suitability" is determined by variable
;; `highlight-changes-global-modes', as follows. If it is
;; * nil -- then no buffers are suitable;
;; * a function -- this function is called and the result is used. As
;; an example, if the value is `buffer-file-name' then all buffers
;; who are visiting files are suitable, but others (like dired
;; buffers) are not;
;; * a list -- then the buffer is suitable if and only if its mode is in the
;; list, except if the first element is `not', in which case the test
;; is reversed (i.e. it is a list of unsuitable modes).
;; * Otherwise, the buffer is suitable if its name does not begin with
;; ` ' or `*' and if `buffer-file-name' returns true.
;; To enable it for future sessions put this in your ~/.emacs file:
;; (global-highlight-changes-mode t)
;; Possible bindings:
;; (global-set-key '[C-right] 'highlight-changes-next-change)
;; (global-set-key '[C-left] 'highlight-changes-previous-change)
;; Other interactive functions (that could be bound if desired):
;; highlight-changes-mode
;; highlight-changes-toggle-visibility
;; highlight-changes-remove-highlight
;; highlight-compare-with-file
;; highlight-compare-buffers
;; highlight-changes-rotate-faces
;;; Bugs:
;; - the next-change and previous-change functions are too literal;
;; they should find the next "real" change, in other words treat
;; consecutive changes as one.
;;; To do (maybe), notes, ...
;; - having different faces for deletion and non-deletion: is it
;; really worth the hassle?
;; - highlight-compare-with-file should allow RCS files - e.g. nice to be
;; able to say show changes compared with version 2.1.
;;; History:
;; R Sharman ( Feb 1998:
;; - initial release as change-mode.
;; Jari Aalto <> Mar 1998
;; - fixes for byte compile errors
;; - use eval-and-compile for autoload
;; Marijn Ros <> Mar 98
;; - suggested turning it on by default
;; Eric Ludlam <> Suggested using overlays.
;; July 98
;; - global mode and various stuff added
;; - Changed to use overlays
;; August 98
;; - renamed to Highlight Changes mode.
;; Dec 2003
;; - Use require for ediff stuff
;; - Added highlight-compare-buffers
;; Mar 2008
;; - Made highlight-changes-mode like other modes (toggle on/off)
;; - Added new command highlight-changes-visible-mode to replace the
;; previous active/passive aspect of highlight-changes-mode.
;; - Removed highlight-changes-toggle-hook
;; - Put back eval-and-compile inadvertently dropped
;; May 2008
;; - Removed highlight-changes-disable-hook and highlight-changes-enable-hook
;; because highlight-changes-mode-hook can do both.
