"""Additional Python code for ELinks maintainers.
This module is intended for ELinks maintainers. If you modify or add to
the Python APIs in src/scripting/python/*.c and/or contrib/python/hooks.py,
you should update the accompanying docstrings to reflect your changes and
then generate a new version of the file doc/python.txt (which serves as a
reference manual for the browser's Python APIs). The embedded interpreter
can use introspection to regenerate the python.txt document for you; just
copy this file into your ~/.config/elinks directory and add something like the
following to ~/.config/elinks/hooks.py:
import elinks_maint
elinks.bind_key('F2', elinks_maint.generate_python_txt)
"""

Python programmers can customize the behavior of ELinks by creating a Python
hooks module. The embedded Python interpreter provides an internal module
called elinks that can be used by the hooks module to create keystroke
bindings for Python code, obtain information about the document being
viewed, display simple dialog boxes and menus, load documents into the
ELinks cache, or display documents to the user. These two modules are
described below.
