4.1 Autoloading gnu Smalltalk mode

To cause Emacs to automatically go into Smalltalk mode when you edit a Smalltalk file (one with the extension .st), you need to add the following lines to your .emacs file:

     (setq auto-mode-alist
           (append  '(("\\.st\\'" . smalltalk-mode))
     (autoload 'smalltalk-mode "path/smalltalk-mode.elc" "" t)

where path is the path to where the two Emacs Lisp files included with gnu Smalltalk are installed (by default, something like /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp).
