Included Diary Files

   If you use the fancy diary display, you can have diary entries from
other files included with your own by an "include" mechanism.  This
facility makes possible the sharing of common diary files among groups
of users.  Lines in the diary file of this form:

     #include "FILENAME"

includes the diary entries from the file FILENAME in the fancy diary
buffer (because the ordinary diary buffer is just the buffer associated
with your diary file, you cannot use the include mechanism unless you
use the fancy diary buffer).  The include mechanism is recursive, by
the way, so that included files can include other files, and so on; you
must be careful not to have a cycle of inclusions, of course.  To
enable the include facility, add lines as follows to your `.emacs' file:

     (add-hook 'list-diary-entries-hook 'include-other-diary-files)
     (add-hook 'mark-diary-entries-hook 'mark-included-diary-files)
