Hi group,
I need some help with my init.el. I am trying to call a mod for Rexx when I load a rexx file.
I don't want to use the file type option (prog.rex). I want to define a rexx file as:

      First line of file will start with "/* ".
      File name does not end with .c, .cpp, .h or .hpp

I have tried these test without success:

      (if (looking-at "\/\* ") 'display-warning :warning "Rexx")
      (if (looking-at "\[/* ]") 'display-warning :warning "Rexx")
      (if (looking-at "^\/\* ") 'display-warning :warning "hello")

Does anyone have any URLs that could help me with my problem? BooHoo

I forgot, I am using FC8.
