;;; and a common set of bindings, with all modes derived from comint mode.
;;; For documentation on the functionality provided by comint mode, and
;;; the hooks available for customising it, see the file comint.el.
;;; Needs fixin:
;;; When sending text from a source file to a subprocess, the process-mark can
;;; move off the window, so you can lose sight of the process interactions.
;;; Maybe I should ensure the process mark is in the window when I send
;;; text to the process? Switch selectable?

The shell to use comes from the first non-nil variable found from these:
explicit-shell-file-name in Emacs, ESHELL in the environment or SHELL in the
environment. If none is found, /bin/sh is used.
If a file ~/.emacs_SHELLNAME exists, it is given as initial input, simulating
a start-up file for the shell like .profile or .cshrc. Note that this may
lose due to a timing error if the shell discards input when it starts up.
The buffer is put in shell-mode, giving commands for sending input
and controlling the subjobs of the shell.
The shell file name, sans directories, is used to make a symbol name
such as `explicit-csh-arguments'. If that symbol is a variable,
its value is used as a list of arguments when invoking the shell.
Otherwise, one argument `-i' is passed to the shell.

;;; Directory tracking
;;; This code provides the shell mode input sentinel
;;; that tracks cd, pushd, and popd commands issued to the shell, and
;;; changes the current directory of the shell buffer accordingly.
;;; This is basically a fragile hack, although it's more accurate than
;;; the original version in shell.el. It has the following failings:
;;; 1. It doesn't know about the cdpath shell variable.
;;; 2. It only spots the first command in a command sequence. E.g., it will
;;; miss the cd in "ls; cd foo"
;;; 3. More generally, any complex command (like ";" sequencing) is going to
;;; throw it. Otherwise, you'd have to build an entire shell interpreter in
;;; emacs lisp. Failing that, there's no way to catch shell commands where
;;; cd's are buried inside conditional expressions, aliases, and so forth.
;;; The whole approach is a crock. Shell aliases mess it up. File sourcing
;;; messes it up. You run other processes under the shell; these each have
;;; separate working directories, and some have commands for manipulating
;;; their w.d.'s (e.g., the lcd command in ftp). Some of these programs have
;;; commands that do *not* effect the current w.d. at all, but look like they
;;; do (e.g., the cd command in ftp). In shells that allow you job
;;; control, you can switch between jobs, all having different w.d.'s. So
;;; simply saying %3 can shift your w.d..
;;; The solution is to relax, not stress out about it, and settle for
;;; a hack that works pretty well in typical circumstances. Remember
;;; that a half-assed solution is more in keeping with the spirit of Unix,
;;; anyway. Blech.
;;; One good hack not implemented here for users of programmable shells
;;; is to program up the shell w.d. manipulation commands to output
;;; a coded command sequence to the tty. Something like
;;; ESC | <cwd> |
;;; where <cwd> is the new current working directory. Then trash the
;;; directory tracking machinery currently used in this package, and
;;; replace it with a process filter that watches for and strips out
;;; these messages.
;;; REGEXP is a regular expression. STR is a string. START is a fixnum.
;;; Returns T if REGEXP matches STR where the match is anchored to start
;;; at position START in STR. Sort of like LOOKING-AT for strings.
