;;; Commentary:
;; The macro `define-generic-mode' can be used to define small modes
;; which provide basic comment and font-lock support. These modes are
;; intended for the many configuration files and such which are too
;; small for a "real" mode, but still have a regular syntax, comment
;; characters and the like.
;; Each generic mode can define the following:
;; * List of comment-characters. The entries in this list should be
;; either a character, a one or two character string or a cons pair.
;; If the entry is a character or a string, it is added to the
;; mode's syntax table with `comment-start' syntax. If the entry is
;; a cons pair, the elements of the pair are considered to be
;; `comment-start' and `comment-end' respectively. (The latter
;; should be nil if you want comments to end at end of line.)
;; LIMITATIONS: Emacs does not support comment strings of more than
;; two characters in length.
;; * List of keywords to font-lock. Each keyword should be a string.
;; If you have additional keywords which should be highlighted in a
;; face different from `font-lock-keyword-face', you can use the
;; convenience function `generic-make-keywords-list' (which see),
;; and add the result to the following list:
;; * Additional expressions to font-lock. This should be a list of
;; expressions, each of which should be of the same form as those in
;; `font-lock-keywords'.
;; * List of regular expressions to be placed in auto-mode-alist.
;; * List of functions to call to do some additional setup
;; This should pretty much cover basic functionality; if you need much
;; more than this, or you find yourself writing extensive customizations,
;; perhaps you should be writing a major mode instead!
;; You can use `define-generic-mode' like this:
;; (define-generic-mode 'foo-generic-mode
;; (list ?%)
;; (list "keyword")
;; nil
;; (list "\\.FOO\\'")
;; (list 'foo-setup-function))
;; to define a new generic-mode `foo-generic-mode', which has '%' as a
;; comment character, and "keyword" as a keyword. When files which
;; end in '.FOO' are loaded, Emacs will go into foo-generic-mode and
;; call foo-setup-function. You can also use the function
;; `foo-generic-mode' (which is interactive) to put a buffer into
;; foo-generic-mode.
;; Be careful that your font-lock definitions are correct. Getting
;; them wrong can cause Emacs to continually attempt to fontify! This
;; problem is not specific to generic-mode.

"Create a new generic mode MODE.
MODE is the name of the command for the generic mode; it need not
be quoted. The optional DOCSTRING is the documentation for the
mode command. If you do not supply it, a default documentation
string will be used instead.
COMMENT-LIST is a list, whose entries are either a single
character, a one or two character string or a cons pair. If the
entry is a character or a string, it is added to the mode's
syntax table with `comment-start' syntax. If the entry is a cons
pair, the elements of the pair are considered to be
`comment-start' and `comment-end' respectively. (The latter
should be nil if you want comments to end at end of line.) Note
that Emacs has limitations regarding comment characters.
KEYWORD-LIST is a list of keywords to highlight with
`font-lock-keyword-face'. Each keyword should be a string.
FONT-LOCK-LIST is a list of additional expressions to highlight.
Each entry in the list should have the same form as an entry in
AUTO-MODE-LIST is a list of regular expressions to add to
`auto-mode-alist'. These regexps are added to `auto-mode-alist'
as soon as `define-generic-mode' is called.
FUNCTION-LIST is a list of functions to call to do some
additional setup.
The optional CUSTOM-KEYWORD-ARGS are pairs of keywords and
values. They will be passed to the generated `defcustom' form of
the mode hook variable MODE-hook. Defaults to MODE without the
possible trailing \"-mode\". (This default may not be a valid
customization group defined with `defgroup'. Make sure it is.)
You can specify keyword arguments without specifying a docstring.
See the file generic-x.el for some examples of `define-generic-mode'."
