;; Keywords: highlight, cursor, accessibility
;; Compatibility: GNU Emacs: 22.x, 23.x, 24.x, 25.x
;; Features that might be required by this library:
;;   `hl-line'.
;;; Commentary:
;;  This library extends standard library `hl-line.el' in these ways:
;;  1. As an alternative to turning on `hl-line' highlighting at all
;;     times, you can turn it on only when Emacs is idle.  To do that,
;;     use command `toggle-hl-line-when-idle' and customize
;;     `global-hl-line-mode' to nil.
;;  2. As another alternative, you can turn it on for only a few
;;     seconds.  To do that, use command `flash-line-highlight' and
;;     customize `global-hl-line-mode' to nil.
;;  3. It provides a face, `hl-line', that you can customize, instead
;;     of using option `hl-line-face'.
;;     I suggested #3 to the Emacs developers, and it was added to
;;     Emacs 22, but with a different default value.  If you use
;;     library `crosshairs.el', you might want to customize this to a
;;     value similar to what is used there, so that the horizontal and
;;     vertical highlights will be the same.
;;  4. Option `hl-line-overlay-priority' is provided, so that you can
;;     make hl-line highlighting appear on top of other overlay
;;     highlighting that might exist.
;;  To use this library, put this in your Emacs init file (~/.emacs):
;;    (require 'hl-line+) ; Load this file (it will load `hl-line.el')
;;  To turn on `global-hl-line-mode' only when Emacs is idle, by
;;  default, add this line also to your init file:
;;    (toggle-hl-line-when-idle 1) ; Highlight only when idle
;;  You can use command `toggle-hl-line-when-idle' to turn idle
;;  highlighting on and off at any time.  You can use command
;;  `hl-line-when-idle-interval' to change the number of idle seconds
;;  to wait before highlighting.
;;  See also these libraries:
;;  * `col-highlight.el', which highlights the current column.
;;  * `crosshairs.el', which highlights the current line and the
;;    current column, at the same time.  It requires libraries
;;    `col-highlight.el' and `hl-line+.el'.
;;  * `hl-spotlight.el', which extends `hl-line.el' by spotlighting
;;    the lines around the cursor.
;;  * `cursor-chg.el' or library `oneonone.el', to change the cursor
;;    type when Emacs is idle.
;;  User options defined here:
;;    `hl-line-flash-show-period',
;;    `hl-line-inhibit-highlighting-for-modes',
;;    `hl-line-overlay-priority'.
;;  Commands defined here:
;;    `flash-line-highlight', `hl-line-flash',
;;    `hl-line-toggle-when-idle', `hl-line-when-idle-interval',
;;    `toggle-hl-line-when-idle'.
;;  Non-interactive functions defined here:
;;    `hl-line-highlight-now', `hl-line-unhighlight-now'.
;;  Internal variables defined here:
;;    `hl-line-flash-timer', `hl-line-idle-interval',
;;    `hl-line-idle-timer', `hl-line-when-idle-p'.
;;  ***** NOTE: The following non-interactive functions defined in
;;              `hl-line.el' have been ADVISED HERE (to respect option
;;              `hl-line-overlay-priority'):
;;    `global-hl-line-highlight', `hl-line-highlight'.
