;;; Commentary:

;; This package provides a command `mouse-me' to be bound to a mouse
;; button.  It pops up a menu of commands that operate on strings or a
;; region.  The string passed to the selected command is the word or
;; symbol clicked on (with surrounding quotes or other punctuation
;; removed), or the region (if either it was just selected with the
;; mouse or if it was active with `transient-mark-mode' on).  If the
;; command accepts a region, the selected region (or the region of the
;; word or symbol clicked on) will be passed to the command.

;; The idea is that for any given string in a buffer you may want to
;; do different things regardless of the mode of the buffer.  URLs
;; now appear in email, news articles, comments in code, and in plain
;; text.  You may want to visit that URL in a browser or you may just
;; want to copy it to the kill-ring.  For an email address you might
;; want to compose mail to it, finger it, look it up in bbdb, copy it to
;; the kill ring.  For a word you may want to spell check it, copy it,
;; change its case, grep for it, etc.  Mouse-me provides a menu to
;; make this easy.

;; The menu popped up is generated by calling the function in the
;; variable `mouse-me-build-menu-function' which defaults to calling
;; `mouse-me-build-menu' which builds the menu from the variable
;; `mouse-me-menu-commands'.  See the documentation for these
;; functions and variables for details.

;; To install, add something like the following to your ~/.emacs:
;;   (require 'mouseme)
;;   (global-set-key [S-mouse-2] 'mouse-me)

to a function to call passing a string to.  If the element is a string

use a string consisting solely of hyphens.
