;;; uil-mode.el --- UIL file editing mode for Emacs

;;; Written by Brett Johnson <>
;;; Maintained for XEmacs by Jake Colman <>

;;; Commentary:
;; Sets up cc-mode with support for UIL file #-comments , a lightly
;; hacked syntax table, and some minimal font-lock regexps.

;;; Code:

(require 'cc-mode)

indentation.  It has its own abbrev table and its own syntax table.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
