Description Michael Orlitzky gentoo-dev 2012-11-30 18:58:55 UTC
I occasionally need to dig through visual basic or vbscript code, and having syntax highlighting makes it slightly less awful. Committed to my personal overlay here:;a=commit;h=f669358b0d3de0e11c6c82dfddfb64f072b85fcf

based on similar ebuild in the emacs overlay.
Comment 1 Michael Orlitzky gentoo-dev 2013-12-03 01:37:12 UTC
Ping. Now that I have the cool badge next to my name, I'll eventually take this myself if the emacs team doesn't want it.
Comment 2 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2013-12-03 05:59:48 UTC
Sorry, this went under my radar for some reason. (Why haven't you pinged earlier?)
Comment 3 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2013-12-07 09:11:39 UTC
There are some byte-compilation warnings:

visual-basic-mode.el:1770:1:Warning: the following functions are not known to
    be defined: zmacs-activate-region, goto-cFormatCurrencyhar,

zmacs-activate-region is protected by an XEmacs conditional. The other two look like copy/paste accidents, though.
Comment 4 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2013-12-07 11:22:47 UTC
For the time being, I've committed version 1.4.12, because above mentioned problems are absent from it.

In the site-init file, I've added the interactive flag to the autoload command, and I've combined all filename extensions in one regexp.
