;;; Commentary:

;;; What is ``mouse-drag.el''?
;;;
;;; Doesn't that scroll bar seem far away when you want to scroll?
;;; This module overloads mouse-2 to do ``throw'' scrolling.  You
;;; click and drag.  The distance you move from your original click
;;; turns into a scroll amount.  The scroll amount is scaled
;;; exponentially to make both large moves and short adjustments easy.
;;; What this boils down to is that you can easily scroll around the
;;; buffer without much mouse movement.  Finally, clicks which aren't
;;; drags are passed off to the old mouse-2 binding, so old mouse-2
;;; operations (find-file in dired-mode, yanking in most other modes)
;;; still work.
;;;
;;; There is an alternative way to scroll, ``drag'' scrolling.  You
;;; can click on a character and then drag it around, scrolling the
;;; buffer with you.  The character always stays under the mouse.
;;; Compared to throw-scrolling, this approach provides direct
;;; manipulation (nice) but requires more mouse movement
;;; (unfortunate).  It is offered as an alternative for those who
;;; prefer it.
;;;
;;; If you like mouse-drag, you should also check out mouse-copy
;;; for ``one-click text copy and move''.
;;;
;;; To use mouse-drag, place the following in your .emacs file:
;;;	(require 'mouse-drag)
;;; -and either-
;;;     (global-set-key [down-mouse-2] 'mouse-drag-throw)
;;; -or-
;;;     (global-set-key [down-mouse-2] 'mouse-drag-drag)
;;;
;;;
;;;
;;; Options:
;;;
;;; - reverse the throw-scroll direction with \\[mouse-throw-with-scroll-bar]
;;; - work around a bug with \\[mouse-extras-work-around-drag-bug]
;;; - auto-enable horizontal scrolling with
;;;   \\[mouse-drag-electric-col-scrolling]
;;;
;;;
;;; History and related work:
;;;
;;; One-click copying and moving was inspired by lemacs-19.8.
;;; Throw-scrolling was inspired by MacPaint's ``hand'' and by Tk's
;;; mouse-2 scrolling.  The package mouse-scroll.el by Tom Wurgler
;;; <twurgler@goodyear.com> is similar to mouse-drag-throw, but
;;; doesn't pass clicks through.
;;;
;;; These functions have been tested in emacs version 19.30,
;;; and this package has run in the past on 19.25-19.29.
;;;
;;; Originally mouse-drag was part of a larger package.
;;; As of 11 July 96 the scrolling functions were split out
;;; in preparation for incorporation into (the future) emacs-19.32.
;;;

;;; Tom Wurgler <twurgler@goodyear.com> for reporting bugs and
;;; suggesting fixes, and to Joel Graber <jgraber@ti.com> for
;;; prompting me to do drag-scrolling and for an initial
;;; implementation of horizontal drag-scrolling.

  "\"Throw\" the page according to a mouse drag.

A \"throw\" is scrolling the page at a speed relative to the distance
from the original mouse click to the current mouse location.  Try it;
you'll like it.  It's easier to observe than to explain.

If the mouse is clicked and released in the same place of time we
assume that the user didn't want to scdebugroll but wanted to whatever
mouse-2 used to do, so we pass it through.

Throw scrolling was inspired (but is not identical to) the \"hand\"
option in MacPaint, or the middle button in Tk text widgets.

If `mouse-throw-with-scroll-bar' is non-nil, then this command scrolls
in the opposite direction.  (Different people have different ideas
about which direction is natural.  Perhaps it has to do with which
hemisphere you're in.)
