;; This file defines a general command-interpreter-in-a-buffer package
;; (comint mode). The idea is that you can build specific process-in-a-buffer
;; modes on top of comint mode -- e.g., lisp, shell, scheme, T, soar, ....
;; This way, all these specific packages share a common base functionality, 
;; and a common set of bindings, which makes them easier to use (and
;; saves code, implementation time, etc., etc.).

;; Several packages are already defined using comint mode:
;; - shell.el defines a shell-in-a-buffer mode.
;; - cmulisp.el defines a simple lisp-in-a-buffer mode.
;;
;; - The file cmuscheme.el defines a scheme-in-a-buffer mode.
;; - The file tea.el tunes scheme and inferior-scheme modes for T.
;; - The file soar.el tunes lisp and inferior-lisp modes for Soar.
;; - cmutex.el defines tex and latex modes that invoke tex, latex, bibtex,
;;   previewers, and printers from within emacs.
;; - background.el allows csh-like job control inside emacs.
;; It is pretty easy to make new derived modes for other processes.

;; For documentation on the functionality provided by comint mode, and
;; the hooks available for customising it, see the comments below.
;; For further information on the standard derived modes (shell, 
;; inferior-lisp, inferior-scheme, ...), see the relevant source files.

;; For hints on converting existing process modes (e.g., tex-mode,
;; background, dbx, gdb, kermit, prolog, telnet) to use comint-mode
;; instead of shell-mode, see the notes at the end of this file.

can be accessed with the commands \\[comint-next-input], \\[comint-previous-input], and \\[comint-dynamic-list-input-ring].
Input ring history expansion can be achieved with the commands
\\[comint-replace-by-expanded-history] or \\[comint-magic-space].
Input ring expansion is controlled by the variable `comint-input-autoexpand',
and addition is controlled by the variable `comint-input-ignoredups'.

`comint-dynamic-complete', `comint-dynamic-list-filename-completions', and

`comint-magic-space'.

Input to, and output from, the subprocess can cause the window to scroll to
