For the most part you do not have to modify this variable. Any variables
set before LysKOM is loaded will not be read from the server.
This variable should `nil', `t' or a list of symbols. 

The value `nil' means read all variables from the server. The value
`t' means read no variables from the server. When the value is a list
of symbols, those variables will not be read from the server.

Any other values are reserved for future use.")

  "**Defines patterns for automatic links in the text.

This variable defines patterns to look for in text and convert to
links to URLs. The value of this variable must be an alist, where the
key (car) is a conference number and the value (cdr) is a list of link
specifications for that conference. The special value `t' for the key
indicates a list of patterns to apply in all conferences. Key values
other than positive integers and `t' are reserved for future use.

Each link specification is in turn a list \(`PATTERN' `REPLACEMENT'
`HIGHLIGHT' `IGNORE-CASE'), where `PATTERN' is a regular expression to
look for in the text, `REPLACEMENT' is used to generate a URL from the
text matching `PATTERN', `HIGHLIGHT' is the pattern group to highlight
as a URL and `IGNORE-CASE' specifies whether matching is
case-sensitive or not.

Each text is examined for each `PATTERN'. If a match is found, a URL
181
182
is created from `REPLACEMENT'. All characters except backslash are
copied verbatim. The backslash character starts one of the following
183
184
185
sequences:

    Sequence    Meaning
186
187
188
189
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    `\\&'          Substitute the matched text

    `\\N'          Substitute match for text matching the Nth (...)
190
                group in `PATTERN'
191
192
193

    `\\\\'          Insert one backslash.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
194
195

The `HIGHLIGHT' parameter specifies which (...) group in `PATTERN'
196
to highlight as an URL. Use 0 to highlight the entire match.
197
198
199
200
201
202
203
204

Finally, if `IGNORE-CASE' is `t', then ignore character case while
looking for `PATTERN'. Values other than `t' and `nil' are reserved
for future use.

When a text has more than one recipient, links will be generated for
all recipients. The order in which the recipients are examined and
the priority among links that match the same text is undefined."

Each element in this list identifies an Emacs och LysKOM command, and
defines the initial values for queries it makes for conference names.

Each element has the following format:

    \(COMMAND . \(\(PROMPT-1 . \(\(default . \(INITIAL-VALUES\\)\\)
                             \(filter  . \(EXCLUDED-CONFS\)\)
                             \(save    . \(SAVE-GROUPS\)\)\)\)
                \(PROMPT-2 . \(\(default . \(INITIAL-VALUES\)\)
                             \(filter  . \(EXCLUDED-CONFS\)\)
                             \(save    . \(SAVE-GROUPS\)\)\)\)
                ...\)\)

COMMAND is the name of a LysKOM or Emacs command. PROMPT-1 and
PROMPT-2 \(there can be any number of prompts liste in a single
command\) are symbols representing the prompt. These are defined
in lyskom-messages in swedish-strings.el and english-strings.el. 

INITIAL-VALUES are functions to call to generate a list of possible
initial values for the prompt. These functions must return lists of
conference numbers. EXCLUDED-CONFS are functions that are called to
eliminate possible initial values. These must take a single argument,
an uconf-stat, and should return the uconf-stat itself if it is a
valid candidate for the initial value, or nil if it is not. Finally,
SAVE-GROUPS are symbols under which the value the user inputs will be
saved.

As a special case, a list in INITIAL-VALUES is interpreted as a
function with arguments. The first element in the list is applied to
the remaining elements.

If `t' is used for COMMAND, it indicates the default to use when no
COMMAND listed matches the current command. If `t' is used for PROMPT,
it indicates defaults, filters and save groups to use when no other
PROMPT matches.


Some useful functions for INITIAL-VALUES are:

lyskom-default-conference-at-point returns the conference shown where
point is. If point is on a conference name, that name will be used as
the initial value.

lyskom-default-conference-current returns the current conference.

lyskom-default-conference-self returns the logged-in person.

lyskom-default-conference-last-author returns the author of the most
recently read text.

525
526
527
lyskom-default-conference-author-of-text-at-point returns the author
of the text at point.

lyskom-default-conference-saved returns saved input. This must be
specified as a list in INITAL-VALUES, where the argument (second
element of the list) is the symbol under which the input was saved,
from \(SAVE-GROUPS\) in one or more commands.


Some useful functions for EXCLUDE-CONFS are:

lyskom-default-conference-not-self excludes the logged-in person.

lyskom-default-conference-not-current excludes the current conference.


The format of this variable may change in the future.

`FN-KEY' is the name of a command, `t' or a symbol that does not
623
624
625
626
627
628
correspond to any function. Keys corresponding to commands indicate
configuration for that command. The `t' key indicates fallback
condiguration that applies to all commands, unless overridden by a
command-specific configuration. Other keys can be referenced from
command-specific configurations.

629
`PFX-KEY' is a key that indicates a prefix. If it is an atom not bound
630
to a function, it indicates configuration for prefix arguments eq to
631
the atom \(e.g. 0, - or `nil'). The special key `t' indicates fallback
632
633
634
configuration, used when all prefix-specific configurationas failed to
generate valid values.

635
`FN' is a function or variable used to generate lists of text numbers.
636
637
638
639
If a variable name, the value of the variable is used to generate a
list of text numbers. If a function, the function is called with no
arguments, and is expected to return a list of text numbers.

640
`PROP' is a property name \(see below) and VAL is the corresponding
641
642
643
value. Properties defined at the inner level apply only to results
generated for that prefix. Properties defined at the outer level apply
irrespective of prefix arguments. Properties defined in the default
644
element \(with `FN-KEY' set to `t'\) always apply, unless overridden by
645
646
647
648
non-nil properties in command-specific elements.

The following properties are available:

    `:filter'       A function that is called on all text numbers. The
                    filter function is expected to return a new or 
                    modified text number. This can be used to indicate 
                    that the command should prompt or bypass the 
                    constraint.
    
    `:constraint'  A function that is called on all text numbers. It 
                   should return non-nil for text numbers that are 
                   valid for the command.
    
    `:refer'       A symbol indicating a configuration to use. Useful 
                   when several commands share the same (complex)
                   configuration. May not be used in the default 
                   element.

    Name                    What it does
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    `lyskom-tnpa-prompt'    Prompt the user for the text number. The 
                            number used as the argument will be the 
                            default. 
    
    `lyskom-tnpa-valid'     Declare that the text number is valid, 
                            regardless of any constraint functions.

When `lyskom-read-text-no-prefix-arg' is called, this list is searched
both for a command-specific element and for the default element. Any
`:refer' links are resolved in the command-specific element. The
filter and constraint properties are extracted. These elements are
then searched for prefix-specific elements that match the current
prefix argument. The first text number that is generated that passes
the filter and constraint functions is used as the text number
argument for the command."
