;;; Commentary:

;; There is nothing to be done or configured in order to use this
;; module, other than to select it by customizing the variable
;; `eshell-modules-list'.  It will then display a version information
;; message whenever Eshell is loaded.
;; This code is only an example of a how to write a well-formed
;; extension module for Eshell.  The better way to display login text
;; is to use the `eshell-script' module, and to echo the desired
;; strings from the user's `eshell-login-script' file.
;; There is one configuration variable, which demonstrates how to
;; properly define a customization variable in an extension module.
;; In this case, it allows the user to change the string which
;; displays at login time.
