if you type:

if (1 = 1) _
then output 2 _
else output 3

to an axiom prompt inside an emacs buffer the IF statement is recognized.
The trailing _ is the line continuation character for the axiom read function.
I always work in emacs and generally use Ctrl-x 2 to split the screen,
run axiom in one buffer and edit code in the other. 
(Ctrl-x o jumps to the other buffer).
(Ctrl-x 1 will return to single-buffer mode).
