;;; Commentary:

;; This package lets you drag the modeline, vertical bar and
;; scrollbar to resize windows.  Suggested bindings are:
;;
;;   (global-set-key [mode-line down-mouse-1] 'mldrag-drag-mode-line)
;;   (global-set-key [vertical-line down-mouse-1] 'mldrag-drag-vertical-line)
;;   (global-set-key [vertical-scroll-bar S-down-mouse-1]
;;                   'mldrag-drag-vertical-line)
;;
;; Put the bindings and (require 'mldrag) in your .emacs file.

;;; Code:

(provide 'mldrag)

Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
