;;; Commentary:

;; A smart editing mode for m4 macro definitions.  It seems to have most of the 
;; syntax right (sexp motion commands work, but function motion commands don't).
;; It also sets the font-lock syntax stuff for colorization

;; History:

;; Date     Version Who Action
;; -------- ------- --- ----
;; 09/13/96 1.0	    DC  Created
;; 09/26/96 1.1	    DC  added syntax table stuff so now matches `'s
;;          		now can use C-c C-b to m4 on buffer,C-c C-r for region
;;                      added m4-comment-region (C-c C-c)
;; 09/27/96 1.2	    DC  Redid header comment
;;          1.3     DC  more cosmetic fixes 
;;          1.4     DC  removed m4-comment-region, using comment-region instead
;; 10/03/96         DC  added provide line
;; 10/24/96 1.5     DC  fixed keyword regexp
;; 10/29/96 1.6     DC  added m4_keywords for --prefix-builtins
;;                      fixed syntax table so _define_ isn't keywordified
;; 10/29/96 1.8     DC  fixed a problem where comments go fontified incorrectly
;;                      if they had quotes in them
;; 11/21/96 1.9     DC  collapsed 4 regexps into 1 and removed a duplicate,
;;                      removed a duplicate backslash
;; 05/16/97 1.10    DC  added contributed fixes and enhancements from 
;;                      Martin Buchholz
;;                      Can now specify options to m4 via m4-program-options
;;                      Now terminates m4 processes when the buffer send
;;                      done
;;                      dnl and m4_dnl recognized as comment starters
;; To Do's:

;; * want to make m4-m4-(buffer|region) look sorta like M-x compile look&feel ?
;; * sexp motion commands don't seem to work right

;; to autoload m4 lisp code:  
;; (autoload 'm4-mode "m4-mode" nil t)
;; or can use (load "m4-mode") or (require 'm4-mode) to just load it 
;; to try to "auto-detect" m4 files:
;; (setq auto-mode-alist 
;;	 (cons '(".*\\.m4$" . m4-mode)
;;	       auto-mode-alist))
