;;; Commentary:

;; dntw.el helps to avoid introducing changes containing trailing
;; whitespace.

;; Do a diff on the file(s) you want to fix, invoke
;; `delete-new-trailing-whitespace' on the diff buffer and trailing
;; whitespace will disappear from the lines that are marked as
;; modified or added. This is specially useful while reviewing the
;; changes you want to commit to your Version Control System.

;; `delete-new-trailing-whitespace' tells you the names of the buffers
;; that were modified. It does not save the respective files.

;; Usage:
;; Save this file somewhere on your load-path and put the following in
;; your .emacs:
;; (require 'dntw)

;; It is a good idea to show trailing whitespace on the diff, so you
;; know when to invoke this funcion. The code below implements this
;; and assigns the hotkey C-c C-k to `delete-new-trailing-whitespace'.

;; (defun dntf-diff-mode-hook ()
;;   (local-set-key [?\C-c?\C-k] 'delete-new-trailing-whitespace)
;;   (setq show-trailing-whitespace t))

;; (add-hook 'diff-mode-hook 'dntf-diff-mode-hook t)

;; Please contact me if you have ideas or improvements for
;; dntw.el

;;; Code:

(defun delete-new-trailing-whitespace ()
  "When on a buffer that contains a diff, inspects the
differences and removes trailing whitespace (spaces, tabs) from
the lines modified or introduced by this diff. Shows a message
with the name of the altered buffers, which are left unsaved.  If
a file referenced on the diff has no buffer and needs to be
fixed, a buffer visiting that file is created."
  ;; TODO: Check that we are in diff-mode or one of its derived modes.
  (goto-char (point-min))
  ;; We assume that the diff header has no trailing whitespace.
  (setq modified-buffers nil)
  (while (re-search-forward "^[+!>].*[ \t]+$" (point-max) t)
      (destructuring-bind (buf line-offset pos src dst &optional switched)
        (set-buffer buf)
          (goto-char (+ (car pos) (cdr src)))
          (when (re-search-forward "\\([ \t]+\\)$" (line-end-position) t)
            (delete-region (match-beginning 0) (match-end 0))
            (message "%s" (buffer-name buf))
            (push buf modified-buffers))))))
  (if modified-buffers
      (let ((msg "Deleted new trailing whitespace from:"))
        (dolist (f modified-buffers)
          (setq msg (concat msg " `" (buffer-name f) "'")))
        (message "%s" msg))
    (message "No fixes needed.")))
