editor-mode

Arguments: development-configuration

Returns the editor-mode of development-configuration. The currently in force configuration is the value of (configuration *ide-system*) (see configuration and *ide-system*).

The editor-mode specifies which set of editor keystroke definitions (that is, which comtab) to use in the editor and debug-window. Allegro provides three sets of keystroke mappings either to follow Windows conventions (:host), to provide basic emacs commands (:emacs), or to provide a minimalist command set (:brief). The editor-mode may be selected on the Options dialog. The variable *text-edit-comtab* holds the comtab that defines the commands for the current editor-mode, as well as any additional commands that you may have been added explicitly.

A drawback of :emacs mode is that many of the menubar shortcuts are removed due to conflicts. Emacs enthusiasts may prefer the emacs-lisp interface to the real emacs editor for heavy-duty editing, while staying in :host mode in the windowized environment to maximize the number of keyboard shortcuts.
