;;; Commentary:

;; Installation:
;; To get the functions in this package bound to keys, do
;; (iswitchb-default-keybindings)

;; As you type in a substring, the list of buffers currently matching
;; the substring are displayed as you type.  The list is ordered so
;; that the most recent buffers visited come at the start of the list.
;; The buffer at the start of the list will be the one visited when
;; you press return.  By typing more of the substring, the list is
;; narrowed down so that gradually the buffer you want will be at the
;; top of the list.  Alternatively, you can use C-s an C-r to rotate
;; buffer names in the list until the one you want is at the top of
;; the list.  Completion is also available so that you can see what is
;; common to all of the matching buffers as you type.

;; This code is similar to a couple of other packages.  Michael R Cook
;; <mcook@cognex.com> wrote a similar buffer switching package, but
;; does exact matching rather than substring matching on buffer names.
;; I also modified a couple of functions from icomplete.el to provide
;; the completion feedback in the minibuffer.

;;; Example 

;;If I have two buffers called "123456" and "123", with "123456" the
;;most recent, when I use iswitchb, I first of all get presented with
;;the list of all the buffers
;;
;;       iswitch  {123456,123} 
;;
;; If I then press 2:
;;       iswitch 2[3]{123456,123}
;;
;; The list in {} are the matching buffers, most recent first (buffers
;; visible in the current frame are put at the end of the list by
;; default).  At any time I can select the item at the head of the
;; list by pressing RET.  I can also bring the put the first element
;; at the end of the list by pressing C-s, or put the last element at
;; the head of the list by pressing C-r.  The item in [] indicates
;; what can be added to my input by pressing TAB.  In this case, I
;; will get "3" added to my input.  So, press TAB: 
;;	 iswitch 23{123456,123}
;;
;; At this point, I still have two matching buffers.
;; If I want the first buffer in the list, I simply press RET.  If I
;; wanted the second in the list, I could press C-s to move it to the
;; top of the list and then RET to select it.
;;
;;However, If I type 4, I only have one match left:
;;       iswitch 234[123456] [Matched]
;;
;;Since there is only one matching buffer left, it is given in [] and we
;;see the text [Matched] afterwards.  I can now press TAB or RET to go
;;to that buffer.
;;
;; If however, I now type "a":
;;       iswitch 234a [No match]
;; There are no matching buffers.  If I press RET or TAB, I can be
;; prompted to create a new buffer called "234a".
;;
;; Of course, where this function comes in really useful is when you
;; can specify the buffer using only a few keystrokes.  In the above
;; example, the quickest way to get to the "123456" buffer would be
;; just to type 4 and then RET (assuming there isn't any newer buffer
;; with 4 in its name).

;; To see a full list of all matching buffers in a separate buffer,
;; hit ? or press TAB when there are no further completions to the
;; substring.  Repeated TAB presses will scroll you through this
;; separate buffer.

;; The buffer at the head of the list can be killed by pressing C-k.
;; If the buffer needs saving, you will be queried before the buffer
;; is killed.

;; If you find that the file you are after is not in a buffer, you can
;; press C-x C-f to immediately drop into find-file.

;;
;;  See the doc string of iswitchb for full keybindings and features.
;;  (describe-function 'iswitchb)

;;; Customisation

;; See the User Variables section below for easy ways to change the
;; functionality of the program.  These are accessible using the
;; custom package.
;; To modify the keybindings, use the hook provided.  For example:
;;(add-hook 'iswitchb-define-mode-map-hook
;;	  'iswitchb-my-keys)
;;
;;(defun iswitchb-my-keys ()
;;  "Add my keybindings for iswitchb."
;;  (define-key iswitchb-mode-map " " 'iswitchb-next-match)
;;  )
;;
;; Seeing all the matching buffers
;;
;; If you have many matching buffers, they may not all fit onto one
;; line of the minibuffer.  In this case, you should use rsz-mini
;; (resize-minibuffer-mode).  You can also limit iswitchb so that it
;; only shows a certain number of lines -- see the documentation for
;; `iswitchb-minibuffer-setup-hook'.


;; Changing the list of buffers

;; By default, the list of current buffers is most recent first,
;; oldest last, with the exception that the buffers visible in the
;; current frame are put at the end of the list.  A hook exists to
;; allow other functions to order the list.  For example, if you add:
;;
;; (add-hook 'iswitchb-make-buflist-hook 'iswitchb-summaries-to-end)
;;
;; then all buffers matching "Summary" are moved to the end of the
;; list.  (I find this handy for keeping the INBOX Summary and so on
;; out of the way.)  It also moves buffers matching "output\*$" to the
;; end of the list (these are created by AUC TeX when compiling.)
;; Other functions could be made available which alter the list of
;; matching buffers (either deleting or rearranging elements.)

;; Font-Lock

;; If you have font-lock loaded, the first matching buffer is
;; highlighted.  To switch this off, set (setq iswitchb-use-fonts nil)
;; I don't use font-lock that much, so I've hardcoded the faces.  If
;; this is too harsh, let me know.  Colouring of the matching buffer
;; name was suggested by Carsten Dominik (dominik@strw.leidenuniv.nl)


;; Replacement for read-buffer

;; iswitchb-read-buffer has been written to be a drop in replacement
;; for the normal buffer selection routine `read-buffer'.  To use
;; iswitch for all buffer selections in Emacs, add:
;; (setq read-buffer-function 'iswitchb-read-buffer)
;; (This variable should be present in Emacs 20.3+)
;; XEmacs users can get the same behaviour by doing:
;; (defalias 'read-buffer 'iswitchb-read-buffer) 
;; since `read-buffer' is defined in lisp.

;; Regexp matching

;; There is limited provision for regexp matching within iswitchb,
;; enabled through `iswitchb-regexp'.  This allows you to type `c$'
;; for example and see all buffer names ending in `c'.  This facility
;; is quite limited though in two respects.  First, you can't
;; currently type in expressions like `[0-9]' directly -- you have to
;; type them in when iswitchb-regexp is nil and then toggle on the
;; regexp functionality.  Likewise, don't enter an expression
;; containing `\' in regexp mode.  If you try, iswitchb gets confused,
;; so just hit C-g and try again.  Secondly, no completion mechanism
;; is currently offered when regexp searching.
