Re: setting makefile-mode for specific filenames

According to the bible "Learning GNU Emacs", page 313 this should work:

(setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("^mymakefile" . makefile-mode) auto-mode-alist))

But it doesn't! Not sure why at this point. Maybe the other makefile-mode rules in auto-mode-alist are messing it up. If you find a solution, let me know; I'd be interested.

Sorry I can't be more helpfull.

Yes.  In fact, I now find that I'd like to make a
match based on prefix as well.  IOW, I'd like
makefile-mode for files that start with "mymakefile".
For example, "mymakefile0" and "mymakefile1" but not
"also_mymakefile".

Thanks,
Noel
