An Emacs overlay demarcates a region of text in a buffer, often giving it a different face or changing other properties for that region. There are many circumstance in which it might be useful to create, update, and delete overlays automatically when text matches some criterion, specified for example by regular expressions. This is what the auto-overlays package addresses. It is intended as an Elisp library, providing functions to be used by other Elisp packages, so does not itself define any new interactive commands or minor modes.
