;;; Commentary:
;;
;; Defines the minor mode `minibuffer-indicate-depth-mode'.
;;
;; When active, any recursive use of the minibuffer will show
;; the recursion depth in the minibuffer prompt.  This is only
;; useful if `enable-recursive-minibuffers' is non-nil.

;;; Code:

(defvar minibuf-depth-indicator-function nil
  "If non-nil, function to set up the minibuffer depth indicator.
It is called with one argument, the minibuffer depth,
and must return a string.")

;; An overlay covering the prompt.  This is a buffer-local variable in
;; each affected minibuffer.
;;
(defvar minibuf-depth-overlay)
(make-variable-buffer-local 'minibuf-depth-overlay)

;; This function goes on minibuffer-setup-hook
(defun minibuf-depth-setup-minibuffer ()
  "Set up a minibuffer for `minibuffer-indicate-depth-mode'.
The prompt should already have been inserted."
  (when (> (minibuffer-depth) 1)
    (setq minibuf-depth-overlay (make-overlay (point-min) (1+ (point-min))))
