Emacs Mode for Editing Tagsets

Download the file tpl-mode.txt and save it to your machine. Change the filename's .txt extension to an .el extension.

If you use emacs you'll know what this is. It gives font-lock, (syntax highlighting), automatic indention and speedbar navigation when editing a tagset. This mode has been used with emacs 21.2, 21.3 and xemacs 21.6.

You'll need to add the following to your .emacs file so that emacs will know what to do when it loads a .tpl file:

(load "tpl-mode")
(setq auto-mode-alist
  (append '(
    ("\\.tpl\\'" . tpl-mode))))

Your Turn

The ODS and SAS XML LIBNAME engine developers, testers, and documenters are very excited about the potential of these new capabilities. You can send electronic mail to with your comments.
