;;; Commentary:

;; Provides a local minor mode (toggled by M-x hl-line-mode) and
;; a global minor mode (toggled by M-x global-hl-line-mode) to
;; highlight, on a suitable terminal, the line on which point is.  The
;; global mode highlights the current line in the selected window only
;; (except when the minibuffer window is selected).  This was
;; implemented to satisfy a request for a feature of Lesser Editors.
;; The local mode is sticky: it highlights the line about the buffer's
;; point even if the buffer's window is not selected.  Caveat: the
;; buffer's point might be different from the point of a non-selected
;; window.  Set the variable `hl-line-sticky-flag' to nil to make the
;; local mode behave like the global mode.

;; You probably don't really want to use the global mode; if the
;; cursor is difficult to spot, try changing its colour, relying on
;; `blink-cursor-mode' or both.  The hookery used might affect
;; response noticeably on a slow machine.  The local mode may be
;; useful in non-editing buffers such as Gnus or PCL-CVS though.

;; An overlay is used.  In the non-sticky cases, this overlay is
;; active only on the selected window.  A hook is added to
;; `post-command-hook' to activate the overlay and move it to the line
;; about point.  To get the non-sticky behavior, `hl-line-unhighlight'
;; is added to `pre-command-hook' as well.  This function deactivates
;; the overlay unconditionally in case the command changes the
;; selected window.  (It does so rather than keeping track of changes
;; in the selected window).

;; You could make variable `global-hl-line-mode' buffer-local and set
;; it to nil to avoid highlighting specific buffers, when the global
;; mode is used.

;; By default the whole line is highlighted.  The range of highlighting
;; can be changed by defining an appropriate function as the
;; buffer-local value of `hl-line-range-function'.
