Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-07-25 18:01:37 EDT
Emacs make-mode doesn't know that ?= is a valid macro assignment operator,
so it doesn't know how to fontify it.  I'll attach a patch.
Comment 1 Jonathan Kamens 2001-07-25 18:10:16 EDT
Grr.  Bugzilla is busted right now and won't let me attach the patch as a
separate file.  Here it is:

Will add. Bugs with patches are my preferred kind :)
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-07-29 23:51:18 EDT
Do you have any example makefiles using this?
Comment 4 Jonathan Kamens 2001-07-30 11:27:51 EDT
Here's one:

---cut here---
FOO1 = bar
FOO2 := bar
FOO3 ?= bar
---cut here---

The first two lines will be colorized correctly without my fix.  The third one
