# for comments in Octave major mode:
I want to modify the behavior so that it inserts the percent sign
I used the following
(setq octave-mode-hook (lambda () (setq octave-comment-char ?%) )) (modify-syntax-entry ?% "<" octave-mode-syntax-table)
But it gives me this error:
Symbol's value as variable is void: octave-mode-syntax-table
I don't know about elisp so well, so how can I solve this?
Here is the configuration needed to make
octave-mode the default one for
.m files and change commenting behaviour to that of MATLAB's. Note that for Octave, both
# are valid for commenting.
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.m\\'" . octave-mode)) (add-hook 'octave-mode-hook (lambda () (progn (setq octave-comment-char ?%) (setq comment-start "% ") (setq comment-add 0))))
