The Emacs WEB mode has been concocted by Mark Motl and Bart Childs, both from the Department of Computer Science at TEXas A&M University. The documentation for the WEB-mode can be found on
Unfortunately there appears to be no info document that describes the mode.
While installing the mode on the OVPIT AFS cell I have modified its ``Limbo'' section a little so as to make it work in the first place. Other than that it's very much a vanilla system that I have transferred from TEXas A&M. The mode itself is installed in
/afs/ovpit.indiana.edu/common/gnu/share/emacs/site-lisp/web-modewhere you will find both the Emacs Lisp file, web-modeX.el, and the byte-compiled file, web-modeX.elc. The original TEXas WEB mode file is there too: web-modeX.el.ORIG.
The mode is configured into the Emacs environment in the defaults.el file, which lives in
This is what the configuration looks like:
(setq load-path (nconc load-path (list "/afs/ovpit.indiana.edu/common/gnu/share/emacs/site-lisp/web-mode"))) (setq auto-mode-alist (cons '( "\\.web$" . web-mode) auto-mode-alist)) (autoload 'web-mode "web-modeX" "load a WEB mode")As you can see from this, whenever you visit a file with extension .web, the WEB mode is loaded automatically.
