;; Changes 

;; Now an arbitrary number of `no-alias' strings may be
;; specified, thus excluding indicated functions from
;; being processed. Listed change-strings row up in
;; different order from last version to that
;; purpose. Respective changes in code.

;;; Commentary:

;; Defines aliases from given command prefix names, in
;; order to enable listing of the (now) expanded names
;; together with the others, already beginning with the
;; mode-name.

;; Automatizes the process of defining aliases while
;; following some rules.

;; This rules provide for cases were it seems suitable:
;; for example in outline-mode most of the commands
;; start with the prefix `outline-', to that `M-
;; outline- tab' lists the commands. Unfortunately very
;; important commands--hide-entry and show-entry--don't
;; start with `outline-'and are not visible that way.

;; That's a case were aliator helps with alias
;; definitions in an output-buffer:

;; (defalias 'outline-hide-entry 'hide-entry) 
;; (defalias 'outline-show-entry 'show-entry)

;; You just have to eval the output-buffer to install it.

;; Of course normally you must specify the file to
;; process; output.el is processed per default as an
;; example.

;; There are cases you may not wish to prepend an new
;; prefix, but replace the old. Also you may wish to
;; make exceptions.

;; Editing in xml-mode (there are several available
;; meanwhile) it happened, that the commands mostly
;; started with `sgml-'. So trying `M-x xml-' had not
;; the expected effect. Handling it the way shown above
;; would result in long command-names starting with
;; `xml-sgml-'. Here it seems better to replace `sgml-'
;; in the alias name with `xml-'.

;; To process this, you have to specify a list with
;; five slots

;;  "file to process" "prefix" "replace-prefix"
;;  "suffix" "no-alias"

;; There may be even more strings in such a list: every
;; string after "no-alias" will be handled as
;; "no-alias", so you may specify any number of them.

;; You may do that via `M-x customize aliator-list-4'.

;; The customized list to process would be for instance

;; ("~/emacs/lisp/textmodes/sgml-mode.el" "xml" "sgml" "" "")

;; Slot 5 - "no-alias" here is empty. 

;; In example below it's filled too, because the file to
;; process--sgml-mode.el--contains functions designed
;; for a html-mode. Probably you will not changes this
;; prefix, nor need an alias with `xml-' prepended
;; before `html-'.

;; So it's customized as 

;; ("~/emacs/lisp/textmodes/sgml-mode.el" "xml" "sgml" "" "html")

;; Aliator might be useful to adapt lisp-files which
;; are not distributed with Emacs. Functions then
;; mostly start with arbitrarily chosen strings to
;; avoid clashes with emacs-functions already in
;; use. However, it's obnoxious not to get listed them
;; in their context, also calling them is not
;; convenient. So I move this personalism from the
;; beginning to the end of a function name, from prefix
;; to suffix. With mell.el for example this looks like

;; ("/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp/mell/mell.el" "" "mell" "mell" "")

;; Edit `aliator-list-1' and/or
;; `aliator-list-4' according to your needs

;; Or extend the code with further aliator-list-n
;; processed

;; ToDo: aliator-report-consum

  "A list of lists specifying filenames and the way to get aliases from.

 \"file to process\" \"prefix\"  \"replace-prefix\" \"suffix\" \"no-alias\"
`prefix' indicates the new name-prefix wherefrom expansion will work, 
`replace-prefix' handles cases where it seems appropriate to provide an `alias' 
replacing the first part of the function-name, as `xml-' instead of `sgml-'; 
might also be the empty string
Each list must specify five strings, the latter three might be
`suffix' the new suffix, 
`no-alias' the exception, where no alias should be defined. You may specify an 
arbitrary number of `no-alias' strings following this one, to exclude thus 
several function-names from being processed.
