;; To use this, first put these three lines in the bottom of your .emacs
;; file (the later the better):
;;
;;	(load "desktop")
;;	(desktop-load-default)
;;	(desktop-read)
;;
45
;; Between the second and the third line you may wish to add something that
46
;; updates the variables `desktop-globals-to-save' and/or
47 48 49 50 51 52
;; `desktop-locals-to-save'.  If for instance you want to save the local
;; variable `foobar' for every buffer in which it is local, you could add
;; the line
;;
;;	(setq desktop-locals-to-save (cons 'foobar desktop-locals-to-save))
;;
53
;; To avoid saving excessive amounts of data you may also wish to add
54 55 56
;; something like the following
;;
;;	(add-hook 'kill-emacs-hook
57
;;		  '(lambda ()
58 59 60 61
;;		     (desktop-truncate search-ring 3)
;;		     (desktop-truncate regexp-search-ring 3)))
;;
;; which will make sure that no more than three search items are saved.  You
62 63
;; must place this line *after* the (load "desktop") line.  See also the
;; variable desktop-save-hook.

;; Start Emacs in the root directory of your "project". The desktop saver
;; is inactive by default.  You activate it by M-x desktop-save RET.  When
;; you exit the next time the above data will be saved.  This ensures that
;; all the files you were editing will be reloaded the next time you start
;; Emacs from the same directory and that points will be set where you
70
;; left them.  If you save a desktop file in your home directory it will
71
;; act as a default desktop when you start Emacs from a directory that
72 73 74 75 76 77
;; doesn't have its own.  I never do this, but you may want to.

;; By the way: don't use desktop.el to customize Emacs -- the file .emacs
;; in your home directory is used for that.  Saving global default values
;; for buffers is an example of misuse.

78 79 80
;; PLEASE NOTE: The kill ring can be saved as specified by the variable
;; `desktop-globals-to-save' (by default it isn't).  This may result in saving
;; things you did not mean to keep.  Use M-x desktop-clear RET.
