;;; Commentary:

;; Minor mode to highlight the line the cursor is in. You can change colors
;; of foreground (text) and background. The default behaviour is to set
;; only a background color, so that font-lock fontification colors remain
;; visible (syntax coloring). Enable a buffer using the command
;; `highlight-current-line-minor-mode' and customize via:
;;
;;   M-x customize-group highlight-current-line <RET>.
;;
;; You can select whether the whole line (from left to right window border)
;; is marked or only the really filled parts of the line (from left window
;; border to the last char in the line). The second behaviour is suitable
;; if it's important for you to see trailing spaces or tabs in a
;; line. Customize the variable `highlight-current-line-whole-line' (or use
;; the function `highlight-current-line-whole-line-on' retained for
;; compatibility with prior versions).
;;
;; You may enable the minor-mode automatically for (almost) all buffers by
;; customizing the variable `highlight-current-line-globally' (or using the
;; compatibility command `highlight-current-line-on').  Buffers whose
;; buffer-name match the regular expression in the customizable variable
;; `highlight-current-line-ignore-regexp' do not highlighted.  You can
;; extend or redefine this regexp. This works together with the default
;; ignore function `highlight-current-line-ignore-function'. You can
;; redefine this function to implement your own criterias.

;; (The functions `highlight-current-line-on',
;; `highlight-current-line-set-fg-color' and
;; `highlight-current-line-set-bg-color' are retained for backward
;; compatibility. There's a special color "none" defined to set no color.)

;; - Peter S Galbraith   <psg@debian.org>
;; - Masatake Yamato     <jet@gyve.org>
;; - Hrvoje Niksic	 <hniksic@srce.hr>
;; - Jari Aalto		 <jari.aalto@ntc.nokia.com>
;; - Shawn Ostermann     <sdo@picard.cs.OhioU.Edu>
;; - Peter Ikier	 <p_ikier@infoac.rmi.de>
;;   Many thanks to him for the idea. He liked this behaviour in another
;;   editor ("Q").
 
;;; Installation:
;;
;; Put a copy of highlight-current-line.el/.elc into some path of
;; `load-path'. To show `load-path': <C-h v> load-path RET
;;
;; Load the file, e.g. add in ~/.emacs
;;
;;  (require 'highlight-current-line)
;;
;; Enable it on a buffer using `M-x highlight-current-line-minor-mode'
;; or globally by customizing `highlight-current-line-globally'.
;;
;; Previous versions of this code worked by adding other comamnds in
;; ~/.emacs instead of using the custom interface.  This is still
;; supported:
;;
;;  ;; If you want to mark only to the end of line:
;;  (highlight-current-line-whole-line-on nil)
;;  ;; switch highlighting on
;;  (highlight-current-line-on t)
;;  ;; Ignore no buffer
;;  (setq highlight-current-line-ignore-regexp nil) ; or set to ""
;;  ;; alternate way to ignore no buffers
;;  (fmakunbound 'highlight-current-line-ignore-function)
;;  ;; Ignore more buffers
;;  (setq highlight-current-line-ignore-regexp
;;       (concat "Dilberts-Buffer\\|"
;;	       highlight-current-line-ignore-regexp))
 
;;; Troubleshooting:

;; - Q: I do not see matching parens from paren.el any more!
;; - A: Check the colors from highlight-current-line or from show-paren-face
;;   and choose some combination which works together.
 
;;; ToDo:

;; - highlight paragraphs, functions etc... (suggestion by Daniel Lundin
;;   <daniel@emacs.org> 19 Dec 1999)
;; - provide overlay priorities
;;   (overlay-put highlight-current-line-overlay 'priority 60)
;; - better way to switch off 'ignore buffer'
;; - face fore/backgroundcolor depending on major-mode
;; - better way to detect xemacs

;; - some suggestions for default keys
;; - highlight-current-line as minor mode. Suggested by Shawn Ostermann.
 
;;; Change log:

;; 10 Sept 2003 - v0.57 <psg@debian.org>
;; - highlight-current-line-minor-mode created.
;; - highlight-current-line-globally defcustom added.

;; 7 Sept 2003 - v0.56
;; - defface for highlight-current-line-face with customization.
;;   Thanks to Peter S. Galbraith for the suggestion. Retained
;;   highlight-current-line-set-fg/bg-color for backward
;;   compatibility.

;; 7 Sept 2003 - v0.55
;; - v0.54 change works now correctly

;; 22 Mar 2003 - v0.54
;; - don't highlight lines which contain faces specified in
;;   highlight-current-line-high-faces. Elisp manual: "Currently, all
;;   overlays take priority over text properties." So, if a text
;;   property is a face, highlight-current-line always hides that face.

;; 12 Mar 2002 - v0.53
;; - updated email address

;; 05 Feb 2001
;; - highlight-current-line-ignore-regexp: better regexp for minibuffers

;; 15 Jul 2000 - v0.52:
;; - Masatake YAMATO: added emacsclient / gnudoit support. Invoking emacs
;;   to load a file from external, highlight-current-line couldn't
;;   initially show the line of the loaded file highlighted.

;; 19 Oct 1997 - v0.51:
;; - uses defcustom-library if available. Suggested by Jari Aalto and Hrvoje
;;   Niksic.
;; - logic error in if-condition of post-command-hook. All Buffers were
;;   ignored if highlight-current-line-ignore-function was unbound.

;; 18 Oct 1997 - v0.5:
;; - GNU General Public License
;; - ignore user-definable buffernames which are ignored for
;;   highlighting. Suggested by Jari Aalto.
;; - works with XEmacs, at least version 19.15. Mark whole line doesnt work
;;   yet. Suggested by Jari Aalto.
;; - highlight-current-line-set-fg/bg-color understand "none" as color
;; - overlay-put moved from post-command-hook to initialization-code
;; - version-variable: `highlight-current-line-version'. Always
;;   "major.minor". Suggested by Jari Aalto.

;; 11 Oct 1997 - v0.4:
;; - Possibility to highlight whole line (from left to right windowborder) or
;;   only from left window border to the last char in the line.
;;
;; 20 Aug 1997 - v0.3:
;; - First public released version.
