Description

Add remarks or other data to files -- even non-writable ones. These remarks are saved as file properties. Overriding the default edit "method", remarks can also be links to other files. Also see CompEmacsTextcoding for a more elaborated example for other possible uses.

Usage

Installation: Put (require 'remarks) (remarks-install) into your startup/user init file.

Select a region and execute `remarks-make'. Remarks are saved and restored via properties.el.

Commands

`remarks-make'
Make a note covering the region from BEG to END.
`remarks-edit'
Edit the note at point.
`remarks-summarise'
Summarise the current buffer's remarks.
`remarks-make-link'
Mark a region as a link to another file.

Variables

`remarks-mouse-button'
Pressing this mouse button over an annotated region (button-3 by default) pops up a small menu.
`remarks-marker'
Prefix annotated regions with this string (default: "[REM%%]", %% being the note number).
`remarks-find-link-function'
Function used for opening links.

Faces
