"I've written several Emacs modes for various obscure or in-house tool languages. When starting my first mode, I found that there weren't a lot of lucid explanations of how to write a mode intended for language editing. Even Writing GNU Emacs Extensions doesn't cover topics like syntax highlighting and indentation. And generic-mode, distributed with recent versions of Emacs, doesn't handle indentation. Here, I walk through my wpdl-mode.el, a mode for editing Workflow Process Definition Language files. "
