view-tp.el 1.0

Benjamin Rutt
Here is a little mode I use under GNU Emacs to debug which text
properties are present at a given point in a buffer.  It pops up a
separate frame to show the properties, and updates itself automatically.

;;; view-tp.el --- view text properties under point in a separate frame

;;; Commentary:

;; Simple minor mode to look at text properties under point; useful
;; for debugging packages which use text properties/overlays.  To use,
;; put in your load path, (require 'view-tp), and issue M-x
;; view-tp-mode RET to toggle on or off.
