;;; Commentary:

;; Provides support for editing GNU Cfengine files, including
;; font-locking, Imenu and indention, but with no special keybindings.

;; Possible customization for auto-mode selection:
;; (push '(("^cfagent.conf\\'" . cfengine-mode)) auto-mode-alist)
;; (push '(("^cf\\." . cfengine-mode)) auto-mode-alist)

;; This is not the same as the mode written by Rolf Ebert
;; <>, distributed with cfengine-2.0.5.  It does
;; better fontification and indentation, inter alia.

;;; Code:
