"""browse command output with an external pager using temp files

This extension is based on the original Mercurial pager extension,
and uses the same format for the configuration section.

To set the pager that should be used, set the application variable::

  pager = LESS='FSRX' less

On Windows you must define the environment variable LESS = FSRX
using System Properties (Control Panel) and set the pager like::

  pager = c:\\tools\\less.exe

or you could specify the pager options on the same line::

  pager = c:\\tools\\less.exe -FSRX

If no pager is set, the pager extensions uses the environment variable
$PAGER. If neither pager.pager, nor $PAGER is set, no pager is used.

You can enable the pager only for certain commands using
pager.attend. Below is the default list of commands to be paged::

  attend = annotate, cat, diff, export, glog, help, log, qdiff, status, tip

Setting pager.attend to an empty value will disable paging.

For colored output on Mercurial 1.6+ the following options must be set::

  mode = ansi

  hg16mode = yes

import os
import subprocess
import sys
import tempfile

from mercurial import dispatch, extensions, util

def uisetup(ui):

    if ui.plain() or '--debugger' in sys.argv or not util.isatty(sys.stdout):

    def pagecmd(orig, ui, options, cmd, cmdfunc):

        pager = ui.config('pager', 'pager', os.environ.get('PAGER'))
        pageroptions = ui.config('pager', 'pageroptions', '')
        hg16mode = ui.config('pager', 'hg16mode', 'YES').upper()

        if not (pager and (cmd in ui.configlist('pager', 'attend', attended))):
            return orig(ui, options, cmd, cmdfunc)

        ui.setconfig('ui', 'formatted', ui.formatted())
        ui.setconfig('ui', 'interactive', False)


        exitcode = orig(ui, options, cmd, cmdfunc)

        if hg16mode == 'YES':
            content = ui.popbuffer(True)
            content = ui.popbuffer()

        tmpfile = tempfile.NamedTemporaryFile(delete=False).name
        f = open(tmpfile, 'wb')

        for line in content:


        callparams = [pager, tmpfile]
        if pageroptions:
            callparams.insert(1, pageroptions)



        return exitcode

    extensions.wrapfunction(dispatch, '_runcommand', pagecmd)

attended = ['annotate',
