;;; Commentary:

;; This file defines a general command-interpreter-in-a-buffer package
;; (comint mode).  The idea is that you can build specific process-in-a-buffer
;; modes on top of comint mode -- e.g., Lisp, shell, scheme, T, soar, ....
;; This way, all these specific packages share a common base functionality,
;; and a common set of bindings, which makes them easier to use (and
;; saves code, implementation time, etc., etc.).

;; Several packages are already defined using comint mode:
;; - shell.el defines a shell-in-a-buffer mode.
;; - cmulisp.el defines a simple lisp-in-a-buffer mode.
;; - The file cmuscheme.el defines a scheme-in-a-buffer mode.
;; - The file tea.el tunes scheme and inferior-scheme modes for T.
;; - The file soar.el tunes Lisp and inferior-lisp modes for Soar.
;; - cmutex.el defines TeX and LaTeX modes that invoke TeX, LaTeX, BibTeX,
;;   previewers, and printers from within Emacs.
;; - background.el allows csh-like job control inside Emacs.
;; It is pretty easy to make new derived modes for other processes.

;; For documentation on the functionality provided by Comint mode, and
;; the hooks available for customising it, see the comments below.
;; For further information on the standard derived modes (shell,
;; inferior-lisp, inferior-scheme, ...), see the relevant source files.

;; For hints on converting existing process modes (e.g., tex-mode,
;; background, dbx, gdb, kermit, prolog, telnet) to use comint-mode
;; instead of shell-mode, see the notes at the end of this file.

  "Major mode for interacting with an inferior interpreter.
Interpreter name is same as buffer name, sans the asterisks.
Return at end of buffer sends line as input.
Return not at end copies rest of line to end and sends it.
Setting variable `comint-eol-on-send' means jump to the end of the line
before submitting new input.

This mode is customized to create major modes such as Inferior Lisp
mode, Shell mode, etc.  This can be done by setting the hooks
`comint-input-filter-functions', `comint-input-filter', `comint-input-sender'
and `comint-get-old-input' to appropriate functions, and the variable
`comint-prompt-regexp' to the appropriate regular expression.

An input history is maintained of size `comint-input-ring-size', and
can be accessed with the commands \\[comint-next-input], \\[comint-previous-input], and \\[comint-dynamic-list-input-ring].
Input ring history expansion can be achieved with the commands
\\[comint-replace-by-expanded-history] or \\[comint-magic-space].
Input ring expansion is controlled by the variable `comint-input-autoexpand',
and addition is controlled by the variable `comint-input-ignoredups'.

Commands with no default key bindings include `send-invisible',
`comint-dynamic-complete', `comint-dynamic-list-filename-completions', and

Input to, and output from, the subprocess can cause the window to scroll to
the end of the buffer.  See variables `comint-output-filter-functions',
`comint-preoutput-filter-functions', `comint-scroll-to-bottom-on-input',
and `comint-move-point-for-output'.

If you accidentally suspend your process, use \\[comint-continue-subjob]
to continue it.


Entry to this mode runs the hooks on `comint-mode-hook'."

it to the process mark, and sends it.

This command also sends and inserts a final newline, unless
NO-NEWLINE is non-nil.

Any history reference may be expanded depending on the value of the variable
`comint-input-autoexpand'.  The list of function names contained in the value
of `comint-input-filter-functions' is called on the input before sending it.
The input is entered into the input history ring, if the value of variable
`comint-input-filter' returns non-nil when called on the input.

If variable `comint-eol-on-send' is non-nil, then point is moved to the
end of line before sending the input.

After the input has been sent, if `comint-process-echoes' is non-nil,
then `comint-send-input' waits to see if the process outputs a string
matching the input, and if so, deletes that part of the output.
If ARTIFICIAL is non-nil, it inhibits such deletion.
Callers sending input not from the user should use ARTIFICIAL = t.

The values of `comint-get-old-input', `comint-input-filter-functions', and
`comint-input-filter' are chosen according to the command interpreter running
in the buffer.  E.g.,

If the interpreter is the csh,
    `comint-get-old-input' is the default:
	If `comint-use-prompt-regexp' is nil, then
	either return the current input field, if point is on an input
	field, or the current line, if point is on an output field.
	If `comint-use-prompt-regexp' is non-nil, then
	return the current line with any initial string matching the
	regexp `comint-prompt-regexp' removed.
    `comint-input-filter-functions' monitors input for \"cd\", \"pushd\", and
	\"popd\" commands.  When it sees one, it cd's the buffer.
    `comint-input-filter' is the default: returns t if the input isn't all white

If the Comint is Lucid Common Lisp,
    `comint-get-old-input' snarfs the sexp ending at point.
    `comint-input-filter-functions' does nothing.
    `comint-input-filter' returns nil if the input matches input-filter-regexp,
	which matches (1) all whitespace (2) :a, :c, etc.

;; Support for source-file processing commands.
;; Many command-interpreters (e.g., Lisp, Scheme, Soar) have
;; commands that process files of source text (e.g. loading or compiling
;; files).  So the corresponding process-in-a-buffer modes have commands
;; for doing this (e.g., lisp-load-file).  The functions below are useful
;; for defining these commands.
;; Alas, these guys don't do exactly the right thing for Lisp, Scheme
;; and Soar, in that they don't know anything about file extensions.
;; So the compile/load interface gets the wrong default occasionally.
;; The load-file/compile-file default mechanism could be smarter -- it
;; doesn't know about the relationship between filename extensions and
;; whether the file is source or executable.  If you compile foo.lisp
;; with compile-file, then the next load-file should use foo.bin for
;; the default, not foo.lisp.  This is tricky to do right, particularly
;; because the extension for executable files varies so much (.o, .bin,
;; .lbin, .mo, .vo, .ao, ...).

;; COMINT-SOURCE-DEFAULT -- determines defaults for source-file processing
;; commands.
;; COMINT-CHECK-SOURCE -- if FNAME is in a modified buffer, asks you if you
;; want to save the buffer before issuing any process requests to the command
;; interpreter.
;; COMINT-GET-SOURCE -- used by the source-file processing commands to prompt
;; for the file to process.

PREVIOUS-DIR/FILE is a pair (DIRECTORY . FILENAME) from the last
source-file processing command, or nil if there hasn't been one yet.
SOURCE-MODES is a list used to determine what buffers contain source
files: if the major mode of the buffer is in SOURCE-MODES, it's source.
Typically, (lisp-mode) or (scheme-mode).

If the command is given while the cursor is inside a string, *and*
the string is an existing filename, *and* the filename is not a directory,
then the string is taken as default.  This allows you to just position
your cursor over a string that's a filename and have it taken as default.

If the command is given in a file buffer whose major mode is in
SOURCE-MODES, then the filename is the default file, and the
file's directory is the default directory.

If the buffer isn't a source file buffer (e.g., it's the process buffer),
then the default directory & file are what was used in the last source-file
processing command (i.e., PREVIOUS-DIR/FILE).  If this is the first time
the command has been run (PREVIOUS-DIR/FILE is nil), the default directory
is the cwd, with no default file.  (\"no default file\" = nil)

SOURCE-MODES is typically going to be something like (tea-mode)
for T programs, (lisp-mode) for Lisp programs, (soar-mode lisp-mode)
for Soar programs, etc.

The function returns a pair: (default-directory . default-file)."

;; Author:  Peter Breton <>

;; This little add-on for comint is intended to make it easy to get
;; output from currently active comint buffers into another buffer,
;; or buffers, and then go back to using the comint shell.
;; My particular use is SQL interpreters; I want to be able to execute a
;; query using the process associated with a comint-buffer, and save that
;; somewhere else.  Because the process might have state (for example, it
;; could be in an uncommitted transaction), just running starting a new
;; process and having it execute the query and then finish, would not
;; work.  I'm sure there are other uses as well, although in many cases
;; starting a new process is the simpler, and thus preferable, approach.
;; The basic implementation is as follows: comint-redirect changes the
;; preoutput filter functions (`comint-preoutput-filter-functions') to use
;; its own filter.  The filter puts the output into the designated buffer,
;; or buffers, until it sees a regexp that tells it to stop (by default,
;; this is the prompt for the interpreter, `comint-prompt-regexp'). When it
;; sees the stop regexp, it restores the old filter functions, and runs
;; `comint-redirect-hook'.
;; Each comint buffer may only use one redirection at a time, but any number
;; of different comint buffers may be simultaneously redirected.
;; NOTE: It is EXTREMELY important that `comint-prompt-regexp' be set to the
;; correct prompt for your interpreter, or that you supply a regexp that says
;; when the redirection is finished.  Otherwise, redirection will continue
;; indefinitely.  The code now does a sanity check to ensure that it can find
;; a prompt in the comint buffer; however, it is still important to ensure that
;; this prompt is set correctly.
;; XXX: This doesn't work so well unless `comint-prompt-regexp' is set;
;; perhaps it should prompt for a terminating string (with an
;; appropriate magic default by examining what we think is the prompt)?
;; Fixme: look for appropriate fields, rather than regexp, if
;; `comint-use-prompt-regexp' is true.

;; Converting process modes to use comint mode
;; ===========================================================================
;; The code in the Emacs 19 distribution has all been modified to use comint
;; where needed.  However, there are `third-party' packages out there that
;; still use the old shell mode.  Here's a guide to conversion.
;; Renaming variables
;; Most of the work is renaming variables and functions. These are the common
;; ones:
;; Local variables:
;;	last-input-start	comint-last-input-start
;;	last-input-end		comint-last-input-end
;;	shell-prompt-pattern	comint-prompt-regexp
;;     shell-set-directory-error-hook <no equivalent>
;; Miscellaneous:
;;	shell-set-directory	<unnecessary>
;;	shell-mode-map		comint-mode-map
;; Commands:
;;	shell-send-input	comint-send-input
;;	shell-send-eof		comint-delchar-or-maybe-eof
;;	kill-shell-input	comint-kill-input
;;	interrupt-shell-subjob	comint-interrupt-subjob
;;	stop-shell-subjob	comint-stop-subjob
;;	quit-shell-subjob	comint-quit-subjob
;;	kill-shell-subjob	comint-kill-subjob
;;	kill-output-from-shell	comint-delete-output
;;	show-output-from-shell	comint-show-output
;;	copy-last-shell-input	Use comint-previous-input/comint-next-input
;; SHELL-SET-DIRECTORY is gone, its functionality taken over by
;; SHELL-DIRECTORY-TRACKER, the shell mode's comint-input-filter-functions.
;; Comint mode does not provide functionality equivalent to
;; shell-set-directory-error-hook; it is gone.
;; comint-last-input-start is provided for modes which want to munge
;; the buffer after input is sent, perhaps because the inferior
;; insists on echoing the input.  The LAST-INPUT-START variable in
;; the old shell package was used to implement a history mechanism,
;; but you should think twice before using comint-last-input-start
;; for this; the input history ring often does the job better.
;; If you are implementing some process-in-a-buffer mode, called foo-mode, do
;; *not* create the comint-mode local variables in your foo-mode function.
;; This is not modular.  Instead, call comint-mode, and let *it* create the
;; necessary comint-specific local variables. Then create the
;; foo-mode-specific local variables in foo-mode.  Set the buffer's keymap to
;; be foo-mode-map, and its mode to be foo-mode.  Set the comint-mode hooks
;; (comint-{prompt-regexp, input-filter, input-filter-functions,
;; get-old-input) that need to be different from the defaults.  Call
;; foo-mode-hook, and you're done. Don't run the comint-mode hook yourself;
;; comint-mode will take care of it. The following example, from shell.el,
;; is typical:
;; (defvar shell-mode-map '())
;; (cond ((not shell-mode-map)
;;        (setq shell-mode-map (copy-keymap comint-mode-map))
;;        (define-key shell-mode-map "\C-c\C-f" 'shell-forward-command)
;;        (define-key shell-mode-map "\C-c\C-b" 'shell-backward-command)
;;        (define-key shell-mode-map "\t" 'comint-dynamic-complete)
;;        (define-key shell-mode-map "\M-?"
;;          'comint-dynamic-list-filename-completions)))
;; (defun shell-mode ()
;;   (interactive)
;;   (comint-mode)
;;   (setq comint-prompt-regexp shell-prompt-pattern)
;;   (setq major-mode 'shell-mode)
;;   (setq mode-name "Shell")
;;   (use-local-map shell-mode-map)
;;   (make-local-variable 'shell-directory-stack)
;;   (setq shell-directory-stack nil)
;;   (add-hook 'comint-input-filter-functions 'shell-directory-tracker)
;;   (run-mode-hooks 'shell-mode-hook))
;; Completion for comint-mode users
;; For modes that use comint-mode, comint-dynamic-complete-functions is the
;; hook to add completion functions to.  Functions on this list should return
;; non-nil if completion occurs (i.e., further completion should not occur).
;; You could use comint-dynamic-simple-complete to do the bulk of the
;; completion job.
