## Re: [AUCTeX] AUCTEX with multiple modes

I recently added mmm-mode support (written by Dan Drake [1]) to sage-mode:

;;; provide MMM (multiple major mode) support
'(progn
'((sagetex
:submode sage-mode
:delimiter-mode nil
:front "\\\\begin{sage\$$block\\|silent\\|verbatim\\|example\\|commandline\$$}"
:back "\\\\end{sage~1}"
:save-matches 1)))
(unless mmm-global-mode
(message "Multiple modes not enabled, please customize `mmm-global-mode' to enable."))))

It seems to work fairly well, and it was pretty easy to setup.

As far as I can understand you are sort of embedding Maxima code into LaTeX
code and you would like the Maxima edit mode for the pieces of Maxima codes
only.

I think that the same sort of thing is needed for Asymptote
(http://asymptote.sourceforge.net/), not sure how/whether they handle it.
Maybe you should investigate whether people with similar problems have found
any standard solution to do it.

Subject: [AUCTeX] AUCTEX with multiple modes

Hi,

After playing around with emaxima-mode (a mode that extends AUCTeX to
mix in Maxima code that can be evaluated, it has not been mainteined for
a while) I came to the conclusion that getting a comfy environment out
of it would involve a lot of hacking. For example, to support M-;, I
need to implement my own comment function that checks if I am in a
maxima environment, and dispatch to comment-dwim accordingly (either
LaTeX-style % comments or Maxima-style /* */ comments). I would need to
do this for other functionality (font locking, indentation, etc) and it
would involve a lot of boilerplate code. So I am exploring other
solutions, and I came across Multiple Modes [1].

I notice that there are several implementations. Is there one which is
preferred for AUCTeX? Can someone please direct me to an example of
multiple modes in AUCTeX?

Best,

Tamas
