This is a normal hook that is run whenever a minibuffer is entered. See Hooks.
This macro executes body after arranging for the specified
function to be called via
default, function is called before the other functions in the
minibuffer-setup-hook list, but if function is of the
(:append func), func will be called
after the other hook functions.
The body forms should not use the minibuffer more than once. If the minibuffer is re-entered recursively, function will only be called once, for the outermost use of the minibuffer.
This is a normal hook that is run whenever a minibuffer is exited. See Hooks.
The current value of this variable is used to rebind
locally inside the minibuffer (see Help Functions).
If the value of this variable is non-
nil, it should be a window
object. When the function
scroll-other-window is called in the
minibuffer, it scrolls this window (see Textual Scrolling).
This function returns the window that was selected just before the
minibuffer window was selected. If the selected window is not a
minibuffer window, it returns
This function is like

but it displays the messages specially when the user types in the
minibuffer, typically because Emacs prompted the user for some input.
When the minibuffer is the current buffer, this function displays the
message specified by string temporarily at the end of the
minibuffer text, and thus avoids hiding the minibuffer text by the
echo-area display of the message. It leaves the message on display
for a few seconds, or until the next input event arrives, whichever
comes first. The variable
