inform-mode

An Emacs major mode for editing Inform 6 source code.

Introduction

inform-mode supports the usual program mode functions: automatic indentation, moving over expressions, comment and string filling, font locking, tags-file support, starting compiles and parsing errors. You can also run a z-code interpreter against the compiled code.

It should work on GNU Emacs (v22+) or XEmacs (v21.4+) on any supported platform.

See NEWS for details of recent changes.

Installing inform-mode

See INSTALL for notes on installing inform-mode.

Using inform-mode

After installation, inform-mode will be activated for any files ending in .inf (and optionally .h) when you visit them using Emacs. Type 'C-h m' to view the documentation for the mode. Variables governing inform-mode can be customized; type 'M-x customize' and navigate to Programming / Languages / inform-mode.
