;;; Commentary:
;; Narrowing, as implemented in Emacs has one limitation, which I find very
;; annoying, namely that it is not possible to narrow within a narrowing,
;; and then widen again to the previous narrowing.
;; This package implements an extension to narrowing, which makes this
;; possible.
;; 
;; This package has been developed as part of my job on writing the book
;; "Sams Teach yourself Emacs in 24 hours".
;; For more information about this book, please go to the page www.mcp.com
;; and search for the word Emacs.
;;
;; To install this package, copy this file to a directory in your load-path
;; and insert the following into your .emacs file:
;; (require 'narrow-stack)
;; (narrow-stack-mode)

;;; History Information
;; 1.0.1 Added documentation for functions

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.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
