;;; History
;; Since I discovered Stephen Eglen's excellent iswitchb package, I just
;; couldn't live without it, but once being addicted to switching buffers
;; with a minimum of keystrokes, I soon found that opening files in the
;; old-fashioned way was just too slow - so I decided to write a package
;; which could open files with the same speed and ease as iswitchb could
;; switch buffers.
;; I originally wrote a separate ifindf.el package based on a copy of
;; iswitchb.el, which did for opening files what iswitchb did for
;; switching buffers. Along the way, I corrected a few errors in
;; ifindf which could have found its way back into iswitchb, but since
;; most of the functionality of the two package was practically
;; identical, I decided that the proper thing to do was to merge my
;; ifindf package back into iswitchb.
;;
;; This is basically what ido (interactively do) is all about; but I
;; found it ackward to merge my changes into the "iswitchb-" namespace,
;; so I invented a common "ido-" namespace for the merged packages.
;;
;; This version is based on ido.el version 1.57 released on
;; gnu.emacs.sources adapted for emacs 22.1 to use command remapping
;; and optionally hooking the read-buffer and read-file-name functions.
;;
;; Prefix matching was added by Klaus Berndl <klaus.berndl@sdm.de> based on
;; an idea of Yuji Minejima <ggb01164@nifty.ne.jp> and his mcomplete-package.
