;;; Commentary:
;; This package is for creating and managing multiple terminal buffers in Emacs.
;; By default, term.el provides a great terminal emulator in Emacs.
;; But I have some troubles with term-mode:
;; 1. term.el just provides commands `term' or `ansi-term'
;;    for creating a terminal buffer.
;;    And there is no special command to create or switch
;;    between multiple terminal buffers quickly.
;; 2. By default, the keystrokes of term.el conflict with global-mode keystrokes,
;;    which makes it difficult for the user to integrate term.el with Emacs.
;; 3. By default, executing *NIX command “exit” from term-mode,
;;    it will leave an unused buffer.
;; 4. term.el won’t quit running sub-process when you kill terminal buffer forcibly.
;; 5. Haven’t a dedicated window for debug program.
;; And multi-term.el is enhanced with those features.

;;; Installation:
;; Copy multi-term.el to your load-path and add to your ~/.emacs
;;  (require 'multi-term)
;; And setup program that `multi-term' will need:
;; (setq multi-term-program "/bin/bash")
;;      or setup like me "/bin/zsh" ;)
;; Below are the commands you can use:
;;      `multi-term'                    Create a new term buffer.
;;      `multi-term-next'               Switch to next term buffer.
;;      `multi-term-prev'               Switch to previous term buffer.
;;      `multi-term-dedicated-open'     Open dedicated term window.
;;      `multi-term-dedicated-close'    Close dedicated term window.
;;      `multi-term-dedicated-toggle'   Toggle dedicated term window.
;;      `multi-term-dedicated-select'   Select dedicated term window.
;; Tips:
;;      You can type `C-u' before command `multi-term' or `multi-term-dedicated-open'
;;      then will prompt you shell name for creating terminal buffer.

;;; Customize:
;; `multi-term-program' default is nil, so when creating new term buffer,
;; send environment variable of `SHELL' (`ESHELL', `/bin/sh') to `make-term'.
;; And you can set it to your liking, like me: ;-)
;; (setq multi-term-program "/bin/zsh")
;; `multi-term-default-dir' default is `~/', only use when current buffer
;; is not in a real directory.
;; `multi-term-buffer-name' is the name of term buffer.
;; `multi-term-scroll-show-maximum-output' controls how interpreter
;; output causes window to scroll.
;; `multi-term-scroll-to-bottom-on-output' controls whether interpreter
;; output causes window to scroll.
;; `multi-term-switch-after-close' try to switch other `multi-term' buffer
;; after close current one.
;; If you don't like this feature just set it with nil.
;; `term-unbind-key-list' is a key list to unbind some keystroke.
;; `term-bind-key-alist' is a key alist that binds some keystroke.
;; If you don't like default, modify it.
;; `multi-term-dedicated-window-height' the height of a dedicated term window.
;; `multi-term-dedicated-max-window-height' the max height limit that dedicated
;; window is allowed.
;; `multi-term-dedicated-skip-other-window-p' whether skip dedicated term
;; window when use command `other-window' to cycle windows order.
;; All of the above can be customize by:
;;      M-x customize-group RET multi-term RET

;;; Change log:
;; 2017/03/03
;;      * Switch to cl-lib
;; 2016/06/19
;;      * Add Hogren's patch: `term-send-delete-word' and binding to key 'M-d'.
;; 2015/02/20
;;      * Binding C-Backspace to `term-send-backward-kill-word' to follow emacs behaviour.
;; 2014/12/04
;;      * Ernesto Rodriguez Reina <>
;;      Fixed the bug of cursor not return to the position it was before opened the dedicated terminal window when
;;      `multi-term-dedicated-close-back-to-open-buffer-p' and `multi-term-dedicated-select-after-open-p' are t.
;; 2014/08/27
;;      * Kevin Peng <>
;;      Keep multi-term buffer list make multi-term-next/prev can switch temrinal buffer even terminal buffer's name is changed.
;; 2014/07/21
;;      * Andy Stewart
;;      Bind C-m with `term-send-return' instead `term-send-input' to fixed bug that
;;      duplicate input when you C-a and C-m in terminal.
;; 2014/06/21
;;      * Fixed bug that can't found define of `multi-term-dedicated-handle-other-window-advice'.
;; 2014/05/12
;;      * Make Emacs 24.4 compatibility cleaner by avoiding version sniffing.
;; 2014/03/23
;;      * Add `term-send-esc' and binding with 'C-c C-e', send esc is useful for some program, such as vim. ;)
;;      * Add new option `multi-term-dedicated-close-back-to-open-buffer-p' .
;;      * Bind C-y with `term-paste' to avoid paste content can't insert in term mode.
;; 2014/03/17   Andy Stewart
;;      * Swap key binding of `term-send-raw' and `term-send-input', i think it's better send yank data when user hit ctrl+m.
;; 2014/01/16
;;      * Fix breakage introduced in Emacs 24.4.
;; 2013/01/08
;;      * Fix customize group of `multi-term-try-create'.

;; 2009/04/21
;;      * Fix a bug that bring at `2009/03/28':
;;        It will kill sub-process in other multi-term buffer
;;        when we kill current multi-term buffer.
;; 2009/03/29
;;      * Add new command `term-send-reverse-search-history'.
;; 2009/03/28
;;      * Add new option `multi-term-switch-after-close'.
;; 2009/02/18
;;      * Fix bug between ECB and `multi-term-dedicated-close'.
;; 2009/02/05
;;      * Prompt user shell name when type `C-u' before command
;;        `multi-term' or `multi-term-dedicated-open'.
;;      * Fix doc.
;; 2009/01/29
;;      * Use `term-quit-subjob' instead `term-interrupt-subjob'.
;;      * Fix doc.
;; 2009/01/13
;;      * Rewrite advice for `pop-to-buffer' to avoid `pop-to-buffer' not effect
;;        when have many dedicated window in current frame.
;;      * Rewrite advice for `delete-other-windows' to avoid use common variable
;;        `delete-protected-window-list' and use `window-dedicated-p' instead.
;;        Remove variable `delete-protected-window-list' and function

;;        those functions is beginning with `multi-term-dedicated-'.
;;      * Modified advice `delete-window', make command `delete-window'
;;        and delete dedicated window, but will remember window height
;;        before deleted.
;;      * Don't remember dedicated window height if larger than max value.
;;      * Fix some bug with `delete-other-windows' and window configuration.
;;        And this bug exists with another extension `sr-speedbar'.
;;      * Add new variable `delete-protected-window-list' for protected
;;        special window that won't be deleted.
;;        This variable is common for any extension that use dedicated
