;;; Commentary:

;; Support for remote logins using `rlogin'.
;; This program is layered on top of shell.el; the code here only accounts
;; for the variations needed to handle a remote process, e.g. directory
;; tracking and the sending of some special characters.

;; If you wish for rlogin mode to prompt you in the minibuffer for
;; passwords when a password prompt appears, just enter m-x send-invisible
;; and type in your line, or add `comint-watch-for-password-prompt' to
;; `comint-output-filter-functions'.

(defvar rlogin-process-connection-type nil
  "*If non-`nil', use a pty for the local rlogin process.
If `nil', use a pipe (if pipes are supported on the local system).

Generally it is better not to waste ptys on systems which have a static
number of them.  On the other hand, some implementations of `rlogin' assume
a pty is being used, and errors will result from using a pipe instead.")

(defvar rlogin-directory-tracking-mode 'local
  "*Control whether and how to do directory tracking in an rlogin buffer.

nil means don't do directory tracking.

t means do so using an ftp remote file name.

Any other value means do directory tracking using local file names.
This works only if the remote machine and the local one
share the same directories (through NFS).  This is the default.

This variable becomes local to a buffer when set in any fashion for it.

It is better to use the function of the same name to change the behavior of
directory tracking in an rlogin session once it has begun, rather than
simply setting this variable, since the function does the necessary
re-synching of directories.")

(defun rlogin (input-args &optional prefix)
  "Open a network login connection to HOST via the `rlogin' program.
Input is sent line-at-a-time to the remote connection.

Communication with the remote host is recorded in a buffer `*rlogin-HOST*'
\(or `*rlogin-USER@HOST*' if the remote username differs\).
If a prefix argument is given and the buffer `*rlogin-HOST*' already exists,
a new buffer with a different connection will be made.

The variable `rlogin-program' contains the name of the actual program to
run.  It can be a relative or absolute path.

The variable `rlogin-explicit-args' is a list of arguments to give to
the rlogin when starting.  They are added after any arguments given in

If the default value of `rlogin-directory-tracking-mode' is t, then the
default directory in that buffer is set to a remote (FTP) file name to
access your home directory on the remote machine.  Occasionally this causes
an error, if you cannot access the home directory on that machine.  This
error is harmless as long as you don't try to use that default directory.

If `rlogin-directory-tracking-mode' is neither t nor nil, then the default
directory is initially set up to your (local) home directory.
This is useful if the remote machine and your local machine
share the same files via NFS.  This is the default.

If you wish to change directory tracking styles during a session, use the
function `rlogin-directory-tracking-mode' rather than simply setting the
