Note: Important changes have been added to this version of GAMS mode. Read the explanation below carefully and change your configurations in init.el file.
  • Changed the name of the main lisp code from “gams.el” to “gams-mode.el”.
  • The name of feature provided by gams-mode.el changed from gams to gams-mode. So you need to use (require ‘gams-mode) instead of (require ‘gams).
  • Changed the name of variables and functions whose prefix is “gams*” or “gams:”. Now all variables and functions defined in gams-mode.el have prefix “gams-“. As a result of this change, names of the following customizable variables changed.
      Old name                         New name   
      `gams:process-command-name'   -> `gams-process-command-name'
      `gams:process-command-option' -> `gams-process-command-option'
    You need to modify init.el setting.
  • Change the default value of variables `gams-statement-file’ and `gams-template-file’.
      gams-statement-file -> "~/.emacs.d/gams-statement.txt"
      gams-template-file -> "~/.emacs.d/gams-template.txt"
