;;; Commentary:

;; Convenience functions for calling Ange-FTP (and maybe EFS, later on)
;; from Tramp. Most of them are displaced from tramp.el

;;; Code:

(require 'tramp)

(eval-when-compile
  (require 'cl)
  (require 'custom)
  ;; Emacs 19.34 compatibility hack -- is this needed?
  (or (>= emacs-major-version 20)
      (load "cl-seq")))

;; Disable Ange-FTP from file-name-handler-alist.
;; To handle EFS, the following functions need to be dealt with:
;;
;; * dired-before-readin-hook contains efs-dired-before-readin
;; * file-name-handler-alist contains efs-file-handler-function
;;   and efs-root-handler-function and efs-sifn-handler-function
;; * find-file-hooks contains efs-set-buffer-mode
;;
;; But it won't happen for EFS since the XEmacs maintainers
;; don't want to use a unified filename syntax.
(defun tramp-disable-ange-ftp ()
  "Turn Ange-FTP off.
This is useful for unified remoting.  See

for Ange-FTP will be forwarded to Ange-FTP.  Also see the variables
`tramp-ftp-method', `tramp-default-method', and
`tramp-default-method-alist'.

This function is not needed in Emacsen which include Tramp, but is
present for backward compatibility."

;;; TODO:

;; * In case of "/ftp:host:file" this works only for functions which
;;   are defined in `tramp-file-name-handler-alist'.  Call has to be
;;   pretended in `tramp-file-name-handler' otherwise.  Looks like
;;   `ange-ftp-completion-hook-function' and `ange-ftp-hook-function'
;;   are active temporarily in `file-name-handler-alist'.
;;   Furthermore, there are no backup files on FTP hosts this case.
;;   Worth further investigations.
