;;; Commentary:
;; URL: http://www.dsmit.com/lisp/
;; The whitespace library is intended to find and help fix five different types
;; of whitespace problems that commonly exist in source code.
;; 1. Leading space (empty lines at the top of a file).
;; 2. Trailing space (empty lines at the end of a file).
;; 3. Indentation space (8 or more spaces at beginning of line, that should be
;;		      replaced with TABS).
;; 4. Spaces followed by a TAB.  (Almost always, we never want that).
;; 5. Spaces or TABS at the end of a line.
;; Whitespace errors are reported in a buffer, and on the modeline.
;; Modeline will show a W:<x>!<y> to denote a particular type of whitespace,
;; where `x' and `y' can be one (or more) of:
;; e - End-of-Line whitespace.
;; i - Indentation whitespace.
;; l - Leading whitespace.
;; s - Space followed by Tab.
;; t - Trailing whitespace.
;; If any of the whitespace checks is turned off, the modeline will display a
;; !<y>.
;;     (since (3) is the most controversial one, here is the rationale: Most
;;     terminal drivers and printer drivers have TAB configured or even
;;     hardcoded to be 8 spaces.  (Some of them allow configuration, but almost
;;     always they default to 8.)
;;     Changing `tab-width' to other than 8 and editing will cause your code to
;;     look different from within Emacs, and say, if you cat it or more it, or
;;     even print it.
;;     Almost all the popular programming modes let you define an offset (like
;;     c-basic-offset or perl-indent-level) to configure the offset, so you
;;     should never have to set your `tab-width' to be other than 8 in all
;;     these modes.  In fact, with an indent level of say, 4, 2 TABS will cause
;;     Emacs to replace your 8 spaces with one \t (try it).  If vi users in
;;     your office complain, tell them to use vim, which distinguishes between
;;     tabstop and shiftwidth (vi equivalent of our offsets), and also ask them
;;     to set smarttab.)
;; All the above have caused (and will cause) unwanted codeline integration and
;; merge problems.
;; whitespace.el will complain if it detects whitespaces on opening a file, and
;; warn you on closing a file also (in case you had inserted any
;; whitespaces during the process of your editing).
;; Exported functions:
;; `whitespace-buffer' - To check the current buffer for whitespace problems.
;; `whitespace-cleanup' - To cleanup all whitespaces in the current buffer.
;; `whitespace-region' - To check between point and mark for whitespace
;;                       problems.
;; `whitespace-cleanup-region' - To cleanup all whitespaces between point
;;                               and mark in the current buffer.
