;;; Synched up with: FSF 19.34.

;;; Commentary:

;; This mode provides a hook which is, by default, attached to various
;; putatively dangerous commands in a (probably futile) attempt to
;; prevent lusers from shooting themselves in the feet.

;;; Code:

;; This function is called (by autoloading)
;; to handle any disabled command.
;; The command is found in this-command
;; and the keys are returned by (this-command-keys).

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
