;;; Commentary:

;; This sample forms exploit most of the features of forms mode.

;;; Code:

;; Set the name of the data file.
(setq forms-file (expand-file-name "forms-d2.dat" data-directory))

;; Use 'forms-enumerate' to set field names and number thereof.
(setq forms-number-of-fields
      (forms-enumerate
       '(arch-newsgroup			; 1
	 arch-volume			; 2
	 arch-issue			; and ...
	 arch-article			; ... so
	 arch-shortname			; ... ... on
	 arch-parts
	 arch-from
	 arch-longname
	 arch-keywords
	 arch-date
	 arch-remarks)))

;; The following functions are used by this form for layout purposes.

(defun arch-tocol (target &optional fill)

(defun arch-rj (target field &optional fill)
  "Produces a string to skip to column TARGET minus the width of field FIELD.
Prepends newline if needed.  The optional FILL should be a character,
used to fill to the column."
