There should be some small diffrents between GNU Emacs and Xemacs, but I don't
know what's the diffrent is. These small diffrents should'nt influence the 
running becous there lot's of are people who run emcas within Xemacs I have

I use Octave 2.0.13 but I shall upgrade to 2.0.14, I just saw that there is a
newer Octave release.

I have found some elisp files to emacs which should allow emacs to run octave.


I have tryed to byte compile these files, but when I do that I get the following

  ** The following functions are not known to be defined: 
    event-start, posn-window, mouse-choose-completion, read-event,
    inferior-octave, inferior-octave-send-list-and-digest

While compiling toplevel forms:
  !! error (("Unknown keyword octave-auto-indent"))

  !! error (("Unknown keyword octave-auto-indent"))

I must say that, I'm not an elisp freak so I don't really understand what's 
and what's happen.

I have tryed to implement the elisp expression which I found from the Octave
manual pages. It was these lines I have in my .emacs file when it's works.
I have also tryed to implement the following lines to my .emacs file:

(setq load-path (append (list
"/opt/local/xemacs-20.4/lib/xemacs-20.4/lisp/octave") load-path))
(autoload 'octave-mod "octave-mod" "octave major mode" t)
(autoload 'octave-make-buffer "octave-mod" "open a buffer in ocatve mode" t)
(setq auto-mode-alist (append '(("\\.m$" . octave-mod)) auto-mode-alist))

When I use the configuration shown above I get the following message when I type
M-x octave-mod:

Signaling: (error "Unknown keyword octave-auto-indent")
  signal(error ("Unknown keyword octave-auto-indent"))
  cerror("Unknown keyword %s" octave-auto-indent)
  apply(cerror ("Unknown keyword %s" octave-auto-indent))
  error("Unknown keyword %s" octave-auto-indent)
  custom-handle-keyword(octave-auto-indent :version "20.3" custom-variable)
  custom-declare-variable(octave-auto-indent nil "*Non-nil means indent line
after a semicolon or space in Octave mode." :type boolean :group octave :version
  load-internal("octave-mod" nil nil nil binary)
  load("octave-mod" nil nil nil)
  command-execute(octave-mod t)

So I wonder what's wrong. Do you think it's hard to get work?

And last, I will thank's for the great Octave. It is very powerfull.
