Anyone? I've been trying to learn how outline-mode works to modify
the outline level, but I'm not quite there yet. I made my own versions
of the outline-level function to try
and see what's going on:
(defun dhr-outline-level ()
"Return the depth to which a statement is nested in the outline.
Point must be at the beginning of a header line.
This is actually either the level specified in `outline-heading-alist'
or else the number of characters matched by `outline-regexp'."
(or (cdr (assoc (match-string 0) outline-heading-alist))
(- (match-end 0) (match-beginning 0))))
(defvar dhr-outline-level 'dhr-outline-level
"*Function of no args to compute a header's nesting level in an
outline. It can assume point is at the beginning of a header line
and that the match data reflects the `outline-regexp'.")
(defun dhr-disp-ol ()
(message "outline level = %d" (funcall dhr-outline-level))
I'm close but still not quite there and could really use a little help!
Again, I had to add variable whitespace to the beginning of outline-regex
since verilog-mode indents comments. I want to be able to adjust the
outline-level based on where "//" starts, not from the beginning of
Thanks in advance for any help on this! This really makes editing my
code so much easier and if I can get this last bit to work right I can
convince a bunch of other ASIC engineers to use it and emacs!
