    It says how to do it in this book. You have to know what transient mode is.

    I think that this information is available online as well.

    Ye, emacs can highlight syntax, there's many options that you can use to highlight keywords etc.

    it's well documented, and explains alot, but it's quite easy to use if you only want to highlight key words in your syntax, there should be a menu on emacs called options, check it out.

    i recommend updating your emacs version before going on. the one that comes with redhat 7.1 is outdated, imho. not that it won't work, but the newer emacs has some extra features that relate to graphics.

    anyway, what kind of change do you want to make? emacs should come with c++ syntax highlighting already.

    Emacs hilighting can suck my [edited]. Did you see Mandrake 9.0? It's the best OS i've ever seen.

    Whenever I save a file as a .c or a .cpp, it highlights the syntax for me. I didnt have to change any options for that, I guess it came setup for me.

    I'd like to practise with emacs about C++ and Python. I think my old version one didnt support Python as well~

    Code:
    (set-background-color "wheat")
    (line-number-mode 1)
    (column-number-mode 1)
    (global-font-lock-mode)
    (setq visible-bell t)
    
    (setq auto-mode-alist
          (append
           '(("\\.h$"  . c++-mode))
           auto-mode-alist))
    
    (add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook
              (lambda ()
                (c-set-style "stroustrup")
                (setq c-basic-offset 4)))
    
    (custom-set-variables)
    (custom-set-faces
     '(font-lock-comment-face ((((class color) (background light)) (:foreground "Sienna"))))
     '(font-lock-string-face ((((class color) (background light)) (:foreground "DarkGreen"))))
     '(font-lock-keyword-face ((((class color) (background light)) (:foreground "Firebrick")))\
    )
     '(font-lock-constant-face ((((class color) (background light)) (:foreground "Navy"))))
     '(font-lock-variable-name-face ((((class color) (background light)) (:foreground "Navy"))\
    ))
     '(font-lock-builtin-face ((((class color) (background light)) (:foreground "Navy")))))
    Like this. I hope Dean isn't stuck using GNU style?
