;;; Commentary:

;; This file implements log file writing support for ERC.

;; Quick start:
;; (setq erc-enable-logging t)
;; (setq erc-log-channels-directory "/path/to/logfiles") ; must be writable
;; There are two ways to setup logging. The first will write to the log files
;; on each incoming or outgoing line - this may not be optimal on a laptop
;; HDD. To do this, M-x customize-variable erc-modules, and add "log".
;; The second method will save buffers on /part, /quit, or killing the
;; channel buffer. To do this, add the following to your .emacs:
;; (require 'erc-log)
;; You may optionally want the following code, to save all ERC buffers
;; without confirmation when exiting emacs:
;; (defadvice save-buffers-kill-emacs (before save-logs (&rest args) activate)
;;  (save-some-buffers t (lambda ()
;;                         (when (and (eq major-mode 'erc-mode)
;;                                    (not (null buffer-file-name))) t))))
;; If you only want to save logs for some buffers, customise the
;; variable `erc-enable-logging'.

;; How it works:
;; If logging is enabled, at some point, `erc-save-buffer-in-logs'
;; will be called.  The "end" of the buffer is taken from
;; `erc-insert-marker', while `erc-last-saved-position' holds the
;; position the buffer was last saved at (as a marker, or if the
;; buffer hasn't been saved before, as the number 1 (point-min)).

;; The region between `erc-last-saved-position' and
;; `erc-insert-marker' is saved to the current buffer's logfile, and
;; `erc-last-saved-position' is updated to reflect this.

;;; History:
;; 2003-04-26: logging code pulled out of erc.el.  Switched to using
;; markers.

;;; TODO:
;; * Erc needs a generalised make-safe-file-name function, so that
;;   generated file names don't contain any invalid file characters.
;; * Really, we need to lock the logfiles somehow, so that if a user
;;   is running multiple emacsen and/or on the same channel as more
;;   than one user, only one process writes to the logfile.  This is
;;   especially needed for those logfiles with no nick in them, as
;;   these would become corrupted.
;;   For a single emacs process, the problem could be solved using a
;;   variable which contained the names of buffers already being
;;   logged.  This would require that logging be buffer-local,
;;   possibly not a bad thing anyway, since many people don't want to
;;   log the server buffer.
;;   For multiple emacsen the problem is trickier.  On some systems,
;;   on could use the function `lock-buffer' and `unlock-buffer'.
;;   However, file locking isn't implemented on all platforms, for
;;   example, there is none on w32 systems.
;;   A third possibility might be to fake lockfiles.  However, this
;;   might lead to problems if an emacs crashes, as the lockfile
;;   would be left lying around.
