in thread Xemacs color code

Personally I prefer cperl-mode over the (IIRC) older perl-mode.

Place the following in your ~/.emacs or ~/.xemacs/init.el file to have (X)Emacs automatically turn on cperl mode for perl scripts:

;; Use cperl-mode instead of the default perl-mode (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.\\([pP][Llm]\\|al\\)\\'" . cperl-m +ode)) (add-to-list 'interpreter-mode-alist '("perl" . cperl-mode)) (add-to-list 'interpreter-mode-alist '("perl5" . cperl-mode)) (add-to-list 'interpreter-mode-alist '("miniperl" . cperl-mode))

You might also want to put

;; Turn on paren matching and font-lock for all modes (global-font-lock-mode t) (show-paren-mode t)
In your .emacs too.
