Emacs’ (and hence XEmacs’) VHDL mode has an annoying thing about hopping in and “help me” with composing code. Type “if” and it tells me I need to add an expression. Thanks. I wouldn’t have figured it out myself.
So here’s how to disable this annoyance:
Add in~/.xemacs/custom.el, to the custom-set-variables clause
'(vhdl-electric-mode nil) '(vhdl-stutter-mode nil)
or turn off the respective options inside XEmacs, under VHDL > Options > Mode, and then VHDL > Options > Save Options
And enjoy the bliss of an editor doing what it’s supposed to do.
