I asked a question a few weeks ago on this list on how to fix a magic-
mode-alist entry that was meant to properly recognize Objective-C files.
I didn't see an answer on the list, but I did get one from Stack
To summarize, the final answer is:
'("\\(.\\|\n\\)*\n at implementation" . objc-mode)
'("\\(.\\|\n\\)*\n at interface" . objc-mode)
'("\\(.\\|\n\\)*\n at protocol" . objc-mode))
This solution has the happy side effect of .h files that are really
C .h files still come up in the right mode (which is why you'd want
magic-mode in the first place).
This I feel is a pretty robust fix - I included code in the regex to
make sure each of those strings is at the beginning of a line, so
random occurrences of "@implementation" or the other strings do not
trigger the wrong mode. Is there any direction as to how I can
propose this get included in the official Aquamacs release?
If not, at least others on the list have the answer to a simple entry
in .Emacs that will open Objective-C files in the right mode.
