In addition to the facilities of typical programming language major
modes (Note: Program Modes.), C mode has various special facilities.
In C mode, `M-a' and `M-e' now move by complete C statements
(`c-beginning-of-statement' and `c-end-of-statement'). These
commands do ordinary, textual sentence motion when in or next to a
`M-q' in C mode runs `c-fill-paragraph', which is designed for
filling C comments. (We assume you don't want to fill the actual
C code in a C program.)
Move back to the containing preprocessor conditional, setting the
mark at the starting point (`c-up-conditional').
A prefix argument acts as a repeat count. With a negative
argument, this command moves forward to the end of the containing
preprocessor conditional. When going backwards, `#elif' acts like
`#else' followed by `#if'. When going forwards, `#elif' is
Move forward across the next preprocessor conditional, setting the
mark at the starting point (`c-forward-conditional').
Move backward across the previous preprocessor conditional,
setting the at the starting point (`c-backward-conditional').
When you are debugging C code that uses macros, sometimes it is
hard to figure out precisely how the macros expand. The command
`M-x c-macro-expand' runs the C preprocessor and shows you what
expansion results from the region. The portion of the buffer
before the region is also included in preprocessing, for the sake
of macros defined there, but the output from this part isn't shown.
Insert or align `\' characters at the ends of the lines of the
region, except for the last such line. This is useful after
writing or editing a C macro definition.
If a line already ends in `\', this command adjusts the amount of
whitespace before it. Otherwise, it inserts a new `\'.
C++ mode is like C mode, except that it understands C++ comment
syntax and certain other differences between C and C++. It also has a
command `M-x fill-c++-comment', which fills a paragraph made of C++
The command `comment-region' is useful in C++ mode for commenting
out several consecutive lines, or removing the commenting out of such
lines. (You don't need this command with C comment syntax because you
don't need to put comment delimiters on each line.) Note: Comments.
