How to edit files of specific types ?
duie to an install error I had to edit the /usr/shre/info/dir file,
which conatins a summary of all info-files of my Linux system.
I loaded it into MicroEmacs and tried to insert a blank line.
Nothing happens...instead ME said : "Invalid symlink"...ME thought,
I would like to jump'n'run in an info-adventure game.
Okay....wrong mode. I fired up "buffer-mode <TAB> <TAB>" and got a
list of available modes. I tried "edit" but this didn't work. In
Emacs I would give the command "text-mode"...but...
In "General Help" under "mode" I found nothing about urgeing ME to
recognize a file to be of another "wrong" type....
How can I hack that ? ;)
Keep microemacsing and have a nice weekend !
