I am looking to write my own major mode.

The programming language that I need to write it for has //... and /* ... */ style comments. I am having a very hard time getting the syntax tables working for both at the same time.

How would I get both of them at the same time?

  • Also, I am not looking to copy the syntax table from the c syntax table as it has LOTS of things that I don't want. – Nick Aug 29 '16 at 4:37
  • There is an example of the right values in gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/elisp/… – wasamasa Aug 29 '16 at 6:47
  • But that page of doc does not have both style comments at the same time as an example i can use – Nick Aug 29 '16 at 8:00

    The question is unclear, and so risks being closed. "I am having a very hard time..." Specify just what your hard time is. Show some code. Describe just what you've tried, what you expected to happen, and what happened instead. – Drew Aug 29 '16 at 13:53
  • @Nick It does actually as c-mode supports both // ... and /* ... */ comment styles. See cc-langs.el for the source. – wasamasa Aug 29 '16 at 17:51
