3 Customizing Ada mode

Here we assume you are familiar with setting variables in Emacs, either thru 'customize' or in elisp (in your .emacs file). For a basic introduction to customize, elisp, and Emacs in general, see the tutorial in The GNU Emacs Manual.

These global Emacs settings are strongly recommended (put them in your .emacs):

     (global-font-lock-mode t)
     (transient-mark-mode t)

(global-font-lock-mode t)’ turns on syntax highlighting for all buffers (it is off by default because it may be too slow for some machines).

(transient-mark-mode t)’ highlights selected text.

See the Emacs help for each of these variables for more information.
