XEmacs / VHDL: Stop that annoying “assistance” while typing

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.
