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:
based on similar ebuild in the emacs overlay.
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.
Sorry, this went under my radar for some reason. (Why haven't you pinged earlier?)
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.
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.
