;;; Commentary:

;; This is the strokes package.  It is intended to allow the user to
;; control Emacs by means of mouse strokes.  Once strokes is loaded, you
;; can always get help be invoking `strokes-help':

;; > M-x strokes-help

;; and you can learn how to use the package.  A mouse stroke, for now,
;; can be defined as holding the middle button, for instance, and then
;; moving the mouse in whatever pattern you wish, which you have set
;; Emacs to understand as mapping to a given command.  For example, you
;; may wish the have a mouse stroke that looks like a capital `C' which
;; means `copy-region-as-kill'.  Treat strokes just like you do key
;; bindings.  For example, Emacs sets key bindings globally with the
;; `global-set-key' command.  Likewise, you can do

;; > M-x global-set-stroke

;; to interactively program in a stroke.  It would be wise to set the
;; first one to this very command, so that from then on, you invoke
;; `global-set-stroke' with a stroke.  likewise, there may eventually
;; be a `local-set-stroke' command, also analogous to `local-set-key'.

;; You can always unset the last stroke definition with the command

;; > M-x strokes-unset-last-stroke

;; and the last stroke that was added to `strokes-global-map' will be
;; removed.

;; Other analogies between strokes and key bindings are as follows:

;;    1) To describe a stroke binding, you can type

;;       > M-x describe-stroke

;;       analogous to `describe-key'.  It's also wise to have a stroke,
;;       like an `h', for help, or a `?', mapped to `describe-stroke'.

;;    2) stroke bindings are set internally through the Lisp function
;;       `define-stroke', similar to the `define-key' function.  some
;;       examples for a 3x3 stroke grid would be

;;       (define-stroke c-mode-stroke-map
;;                      '((0 . 0) (1 . 1) (2 . 2))
;;                      'kill-region)
;;       (define-stroke strokes-global-map
;;                      '((0 . 0) (0 . 1) (0 . 2) (1 . 2) (2 . 2))
;;                      'list-buffers)

;;       however, if you would probably just have the user enter in the
;;       stroke interactively and then set the stroke to whatever he/she
;;       entered. The Lisp function to interactively read a stroke is
;;       `strokes-read-stroke'.  This is especially helpful when you're
;;       on a fast computer that can handle a 9x9 stroke grid.

;;       NOTE: only global stroke bindings are currently implemented,
;;       however mode- and buffer-local stroke bindings may eventually
;;       be implemented in a future version.

;; The important variables to be aware of for this package are listed
;; below.  They can all be altered through the customizing package via

;; > M-x customize

;; and customizing the group named `strokes'.  You can also read
;; documentation on the variables there.

;; `strokes-minimum-match-score' (determines the threshold of error that
;; makes a stroke acceptable or unacceptable.  If your strokes arn't
;; matching, then you should raise this variable.

;; `strokes-grid-resolution' (determines the grid dimensions that you use
;; when defining/reading strokes.  The finer the grid your computer can
;; handle, the more you can do, but even a 3x3 grid is pretty cool.)
;; The default value (7) should be fine for most decent computers.
;; NOTE: This variable should not be set to a number less than 3.

;; `strokes-display-strokes-buffer' will allow you to hide the strokes
;; buffer when doing simple strokes.  This is a speedup for slow
;; computers as well as people who don't want to see their strokes.

;; If you find that your mouse is accelerating too fast, you can
;; execute the UNIX X command to slow it down.  A good possibility is

;; % xset m 5/4 8

;; which seems, heuristically, to work okay, without much disruption.

;; Whenever you load in the strokes package, you will be able to save
;; what you've done upon exiting Emacs.  You can also do

;; > M-x save-strokes

;; and it will save your strokes in ~/.strokes, or you may wish to change
;; this by setting the variable `strokes-file'.

;; Note that internally, all of the routines that are part of this
;; package are able to deal with complex strokes, as they are a superset
;; of simple strokes.  However, the default of this package will map
;; mouse button2 to the command `strokes-do-stroke', and NOT
;; `strokes-do-complex-stroke'.  If you wish to use complex strokes, you
;; will have to override this key mapping.  Complex strokes are terminated
;; with mouse button3.  The strokes package will not interfere with
;; `mouse-yank', but you may want to examine how this is done (see the
;; variable `strokes-click-command')

;; To get strokes to work as part of your your setup, then you'll have
;; put the strokes package in your load-path (preferably byte-compiled)
;; and then add the following to your .emacs file (or wherever
;; you put Emacs-specific startup preferences):

;;(and (fboundp 'device-on-window-system-p)
;;     (device-on-window-system-p)
;;     (require 'strokes))

;; Once loaded, you can start stroking.  You can also toggle between
;; strokes mode by simple typing

;; > M-x strokes-mode

;; I am now in the process of porting this package to Emacs.  I also hope
;; that, with the help of others, this package will be useful in entering
;; in pictographic-like language text using the mouse (i.e. Korean).
;; Japanese and Chinese are a bit trickier, but I'm sure that with help
;; it can be done.  The next version will allow the user to enter strokes
;; which "remove the pencil from the paper" so to speak, so one character
;; can have multiple strokes.

;; You can read more about strokes at:

;; http://www.mit.edu/people/cadet/strokes-help.html

;; If you're interested in using strokes for writing English into Emacs
;; using strokes, then you'll want to read about it on the web page above
;; or just download from http://www.mit.edu/people/cadet/strokes-abc.el,
;; which is nothing but a file with some helper commands for inserting
;; alphanumerics and punctuation.

;; Great thanks to Rob Ristroph for his generosity in letting me use his
;; PC to develop this, Jason Johnson for his help in algorithms, Euna
;; Kim for her help in Korean, and massive thanks to the helpful guys
;; on the help instance on athena (zeno, jered, amu, gsstark, ghudson, etc)
;; Special thanks to Steve Baur and Hrvoje Niksic for all their help.
;; And even more thanks to Dave Gillespie for all the elisp help--he
;; is responsible for helping me use the cl macros at (near) max speed.

;; Tasks: (what I'm getting ready for future version)...
;; 2) use 'strokes-read-complex-stroke for korean, etc.
;; 4) buffer-local 'strokes-local-map, and mode-stroke-maps would be nice
;; 5) 'list-strokes (kinda important).  What do people want?
;;    How about an optional docstring for each stroke so that a person
;;    can examine the strokes-file and actually make sense of it?
;;    (e.g. "This stroke is a pentagram")
;; 6) add some hooks, like `strokes-read-stroke-hook'
;; 7) See what people think of the factory settings.  Should I change
;;    them?  They're all pretty arbitrary in a way.  I guess they
;;    should be minimal, but computers are getting lots faster, and
;;    if I choose the defaults too conservatively, then strokes will
;;    surely dissapoint some people on decent machines (until they
;;    figure out M-x customize).  I need feedback.
;; Other: I always have the most beta version of strokes, so if you

the value of `strokes-grid-resolution', since a higher grid resolution
will correspond to more sample points, and thus more distance

then you can set `strokes-minimum-match-score' to something that works

;;; Advice for various functions...

;; I'd originally wanted to write a macro that would just take in the
;; generic functions which use mouse button2 in various modes.  Most of
;; them are identical in form: they take an event as the single argument
;; and then do their thing.  I tried writing a macro that looked
;; something like this, but failed.  Advice just ain't that easy.  The
;; one that bugged me the most was `Manual-follow-xref', because that had
;; &rest arguments, and I didn't know how to work around it in defadvice.
;; However, I was able to fix up most of the important modes (i.e. the
;; ones I use all the time).  One `bug' in the program that I just can't
;; seem to figure out is why I can only advise other button2 functions
;; successfully when the variable `strokes-use-strokes-buffer' is nil.  I
;; did all the save-excursion/save-window-excursion stuff SPECIFICALLY so
;; that using the strokes buffer or not would absolutely not affect any
;; other part of the program.  If someone can figure out how to make the
;; following advices work w/ regardless of that variable
;; `strokes-use-strokes-buffer', then that would be a great victory.  If
;; someone out there would be kind enough to make the commented code
;; below work, I'd be grateful.  By the way, I put the `protect' keywords
;; there to insure that if a stroke went bad, then
;; `strokes-click-command' would be set back.  If this isn't necessary,
;; then feel free to let me know.

;; For what follows, I really wanted something that would work like this:

;;(strokes-fix-button2 'vm-mouse-button-2)

;; Or even better, I could have simply done something like:

;;(mapcar 'strokes-fix-button2

;;------------------------------------------------------------

;;** Strokes...

;;The strokes package allows you to define strokes, made with
;;the mouse or other pointer device, that Emacs can interpret as
;;corresponding to commands, and then executes the commands.  It does
;;character recognition, so you don't have to worry about getting it
;;right every time.

;;Strokes are easy to program and fun to use.  To start strokes going,
;;you'll want to put the following line in your .emacs file as mentioned
;;in the commentary to strokes.el.

;;This will load strokes when and only when you start Emacs on a window
;;system, with a mouse or other pointer device defined.

;;To toggle strokes-mode, you just do

;;> M-x strokes-mode

;;** Strokes for controling the behavior of Emacs...

;;When you're ready to start defining strokes, just use the command

;;> M-x global-set-stroke

;;You will see a ` *strokes*' buffer which is waiting for you to enter in
;;your stroke.  When you enter in the stroke, you draw with button1 or
;;button2, and then end with button3.  Next, you enter in the command
;;which will be executed when that stroke is invoked.  Simple as that.
;;For now, try to define a stroke to copy a region.  This is a popular
;;edit command, so type

;;> M-x global-set-stroke

;;Then, in the ` *strokes*' buffer, draw the letter `C' (for `copy'\)
;;and then, when it asks you to enter the command to map that to, type

;;> copy-region-as-kill

;;That's about as hard as it gets.
;;Remember: paint with button1 or button2 and then end with button3.

;;If ever you want to know what a certain strokes maps to, then do

;;> M-x describe-stroke

;;and you can enter in any arbitrary stroke.  Remember: The strokes
;;package lets you program in simple and complex, or multi-lift, strokes.
;;The only difference is how you *invoke* the two.  You will most likely
;;use simple strokes, as complex strokes were developed for
;;Chinese/Japanese/Korean.  So the middle mouse button, button2, will
;;invoke the command `strokes-do-stroke' in buffers where button2 doesn't
;;already have a meaning other than its original, which is `mouse-yank'.
;;But don't worry: `mouse-yank' will still work with strokes.  See the
;;variable `strokes-click-command'.

;;If ever you define a stroke which you don't like, then you can unset
;;it with the command

;;> M-x strokes-unset-last-stroke

;;Your strokes are stored as you enter them.  They get saved in a file
;;called ~/.strokes, along with other strokes configuration variables.
;;You can change this location by setting the variable `strokes-file'.
;;You will be prompted to save them when you exit Emacs, or you can save
;;them with

;;> M-x save-strokes

;;Your strokes get loaded automatically when you enable `strokes-mode'.
;;You can also load in your user-defined strokes with

;;> M-x load-user-strokes

;;** A few more important things...

;;o The command `strokes-do-stroke' is also invoked with M-button2, so that you
;;  can still enter a stroke in modes which use button2 for other things,
;;  such as cross-referencing.

;;o Strokes are a bit computer-dependent in that they depend somewhat on
;;  the speed of the computer you're working on.  This means that you
;;  may have to tweak some variables.  You can read about them in the
;;  commentary of `strokes.el'.  Better to just use apropos and read their
;;  docstrings.  All variables/functions start with `strokes'.  The one
;;  variable which many people wanted to see was
;;  `strokes-use-strokes-buffer' which allows the user to use strokes
;;  silently--without displaying the strokes.  All variables can be set
;;  by customizing the group named `strokes' via the customization package:
