 ;;; Commentary:
 ;; Many editors (e.g. Vim) have the feature of saving minibuffer
 ;; history to an external file after exit.  This package provides the
-;; same feature in Emacs.  When Emacs is about the exit,
-;; `savehist-save' will dump the contents of various minibuffer
-;; histories (as determined by `savehist-history-variables') to a save
-;; file (`~/.emacs-history' by default).  Although the package was
-;; designed for saving the minibuffer histories, any variables can be
-;; saved that way.
+;; same feature in Emacs.  When set up, it saves recorded minibuffer
+;; histories to a file (`~/.emacs-history' by default).  Additional
+;; variables may be specified by customizing
+;; `savehist-additional-variables'.
-;; To use savehist, put the following to `~/.emacs':
+;; To use savehist, turn on savehist-mode by putting the following in
+;; `~/.emacs':
-;; (require 'savehist)
-;; (savehist-load)
+;;     (savehist-mode 1)
+;; or with customize: `M-x customize-option RET savehist-mode RET'.
+;; You can also explicitly save history with `M-x savehist-save' and
+;; load it by loading the `savehist-file' with `M-x load-file'.
-;; Be sure to have `savehist.el' in a directory that is in your
-;; load-path, and byte-compile it.
+;; If you are using a version of Emacs that does not ship with this
+;; package, be sure to have `savehist.el' in a directory that is in
+;; your load-path, and to byte-compile it.
-;; This code should work on XEmacs 19.14 and later, as well as GNU
-;; Emacs 19.34 and later.  It requires the Customize library, however
-;; (shipped with XEmacs 19.15 and later, and with GNU Emacs 20.x).
