;;; Commentary:

;; `revbufs' reverts Emacs buffers that are visiting files that have been
;; modified outside Emacs' control.  This is useful for files generated by a
;; compiler, or log files.  `revbufs' won't revert a buffer that has been
;; modified (what it calls "conflicts"), and will tell you if any files
;; disappeared out from under your buffers ("orphans").

;;; Change Log:

;; [Version 1.2, 2007-03-01, neil@neilvandyke.org] Added missing `provide'.

;; [Version 1.1, 15-Oct-2002] Updated email address, URL, comments.
;; [Version 1.0, 04-Sep-1999] Initial release.

;;; Code:

    ;; Process the buffers.

                  ((eq buf report-buf) nil)
                  ;; If buf is not a file buf, ignore it.
