;;; Commentary:

; Mark files and move them to different places with the help of dired.
;
; Use it, for instance, if you have a lot random files in a directory,
; and would like to move them to different places, on some criteria
; that you know, but not your computer.  For instance, mark all comic
; book archive files with "1" and all text-files about motherboards
; with "2" and all text-files about dinosaurs with "3".  Noodle about
; with this for a while, reviewing your marks, discovering new types
; of files in your disorganized random dir, and finally press "c-c" to
; pop-up a buffer where you decide where the files go.  When decided,
; press c-c and the files go there!
;
;More precise insructions:
;
; - use "fsdired-change-to-fsdired-mode" to start, in a dired buffer
; - use numeric keys 0-9 to tag files in different groups
; - use C-c [0-9] to review your marks
;   - use g to restore the view
; - use c-c c-c to end.  this will:
;   - switch back the marks buffer to  dired mode
;   - popup a command buffer where you can decide what to do with each group
;     there is a line for each group looking like:
;     "1M /tmp", where 1 corresponds to a mark, M is a command, and /tmp an argument for the command
;     commands(yeah only one for now):
;     M - move
;   - c-i inserts a file name at point, which is convenient with ido mode, for instance

;Issues: and ideas

; - must the cmd buffer end with newline?


; - if there are no marks for a certain char in  the cmd buffer, default will be the file the cursor is on...
;(dired-get-marked-files)

; - 1st line could indicate which dired buffer the command buffer is associated with by default
; - processing dired commands is kind of the same as "x" for expunge...

;- currently nearly no error checking is done!
;
;  - ought to handle invalid format of the command buffer
;  - ought to handle missing command character definitions
;  - ought to report no matching command line in the command buffer for a mark
;  - some convenience functions to build the command buffer:
;    - command to fill with sane defaults(consider though that we might want to reuse command buffers)
;- hide-lines.el is used when reviewing marks.  would be
;  better to find some std (cvs) Emacs facility
;- dont crash when destination exists
;- prompt for directory creation, if desired destionation doesnt exist
;- dont crash when "." is somewhere, mark or destinarion
;- before commiting command buffer, see to it that lines arent hidden
;- possibly hide/show lines automatically in dired buffer when moving in command buffer
;- the keymap set/restore mechanism seem to discard user customizations, why?

;DONE
; - the rename M is odd when the dir to move to doesnt exist(should ask to mk dir)
;    - facility to enter a directory path conveniently
; - add possibility to add kbd bindings directly to dired kbd map
; - c-1 etc dosn no longer work?

;fsdired has only been tested on CVS Emacs 22.

;;; History:
; 0.1  - initial release for review
; 0.11 - Some minor changes on advice from  Andrew M.  Scott
;; 


;;; Code:

;how to hide lines:
(setq fsdired-has-hide-lines (require 'hide-lines nil t) )
;http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/HideLines
; - I try to fail gracefully if no hide-lines



;I tried another method which didnt require an external package:
;  dired-do-kill-lines, set dired-marker-regexp
;  revert-bufer to restore
;this didnt work because revert-buffer doesnt restore marks on hidden lines
