;;; Commentary:

;; This file contains functions for using links in buffers.  A link is
;; a part of the buffer marked with a special face, beeing
;; hightlighted while the mouse points to it and beeing activated when
;; pressing return or clicking the button2.

;; Which each link a function and some data are associated.  Upon
;; clicking the function is called with the data as only
;; argument. Both the function and the data are stored in text
;; properties.
;;
;; link-create-link       - insert a new link for the text in the given range
;; link-initialize-keymap - install the keybinding for selecting links
