;; two-mode-mode.el -- switches between tcl and sgml(html) modes

;; These same concepts could be used to do a number of neat 2-mode
;; modes, for things like PHP, or anything else where you have a
;; couple of modes you'd like to use.
;; Use of 'psgml-mode' is highly recommended. It is, of course, a
;; part of Debian GNU/Linux.
;; Author: David N. Welton <>
;; Modified by Marco Pantaleoni <>
;; to allow execution of an hook on mode switching.
;; Also added a standard mode hook and some documentation strings.
;; Janko Heilgeist <> and Stefan Schimanski
;; <> submitted modifications that enable the use of
;; multiple modes, so I suppose that 'two-mode-mode' isn't strictly
;; accurate anymore.
;; Modified May 2010 by Steve Vinoski to work with emacs 23.
;; configure these:
(defvar default-mode (list "SGML" 'sgml-mode))
(defvar second-modes (list
(list "Erlang" "<erl>" "</erl>" 'erlang-mode)
(list "Erlang" "<?erl" "?>" 'erlang-mode)
(list "C++" "<?php" "?>" 'c++-mode)
(list "Python" "<?python" "?>" 'python-mode)
(list "Tcl" "<?" "?>" 'tcl-mode)
