I work a lot with unix config files (i.e the files in /etc in the various linux system) that have no extension. How can I set-up my .emacs file to load conf-unix-mode on those files?
If you mean specifically "all files in the
/etc/ directory," you could add an absolute path to your
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("/etc/.*" . conf-unix-mode))
