;; This package allows the entire contents (or as much as possible) of the
;; minibuffer to be visible at once when typing.  As the end of a line is
;; reached, the minibuffer will resize itself.  When the user is done
;; typing, the minibuffer will return to its original size.

;; In window systems where it is possible to have a frame in which the
;; minibuffer is the only window, the frame itself can be resized.  In FSF
;; GNU Emacs 19.22 and earlier, the frame may not be properly returned to
;; its original size after it ceases to be active because
;; `minibuffer-exit-hook' didn't exist until version 19.23.

;; NOTE: The code to resize frames has not been tested under Lucid Emacs,
;; because detached minibuffers are broken.

;; Note that the minibuffer and echo area are not the same!  They simply
;; happen to occupy roughly the same place on the frame.  Messages put in
;; the echo area will not cause any resizing by this package.

;; This package is considered a minor mode but it doesn't put anything in
;; minor-mode-alist because this mode is specific to the minibuffer, which
;; has no modeline.

;; To use this package, put the following in your .emacs:
;;     (autoload 'resize-minibuffer-mode "rsz-minibuf" nil t)
;; Invoking the command `resize-minibuffer-mode' will then enable this mode.

;;; Code:

  :group 'frames)

(defun resize-minibuffer-mode (&optional prefix)
  "Enable or disable resize-minibuffer mode.
A negative prefix argument disables this mode.  A positive argument or
argument of 0 enables it.

When this minor mode is enabled, the minibuffer is dynamically resized to
contain the entire region of text put in it as you type.

The variable `resize-minibuffer-mode' is set to t or nil depending on
whether this mode is active or not.

The maximum height to which the minibuffer can grow is controlled by the
variable `resize-minibuffer-window-max-height'.

The variable `resize-minibuffer-window-exactly' determines whether the
minibuffer window should ever be shrunk to make it no larger than needed to
display its contents.

When using a window system, it is possible for a minibuffer to be the sole
window in a frame.  Since that window is already its maximum size, the only
way to make more text visible at once is to increase the size of the frame.
The variable `resize-minibuffer-frame' controls whether this should be
done.  The variables `resize-minibuffer-frame-max-height' and
`resize-minibuffer-frame-exactly' are analogous to their window
