;;; Commentary:

;; This package provides the operations on rectangles that are documented
;; in the Emacs manual.

;; ### NOTE: this file has been almost completely rewritten by Didier Verna
;; <verna@inf.enst.fr> in July 1999. The purpose of this rewrite is to be less
;; intrusive and fill lines with whitespaces only when needed. A few functions
;; are untouched though, as noted above their definition.


;;; Code:

spaces and tab.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
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.
