A while ago, I thought I saw a mode that provided fixed
autoindentation for Emacs, similar to what "vi" has. That is, unlike
indented text mode, where adding indentation goes to the next
whitespace character in the previous line, in fixed auto indent mode,
adding extra indentation always adds a fixed amount.
I'd be interested in something like that because I edit a lot of mixed
programming language text and the language aware modes simply don't work
So, if you know where I can find such a mode (or whether it's
just a simple setting), I'd appreciate if you could let me know
(posting is fine; if I get E-mail, I'll summarize).
