I believe vim does the same.  I use it exclusively for C/C++, Perl,
HTML, etc.  Autoindenting is included in pretty much all "full
featured" editors, isn't it?

Looking through the vim shared directory (/usr/local/share/vim/vim63/)
I found that there are CHANGELOG syntax and filetype defs.  Perhaps
it's similar to the emacs mode.

I'm going to look through the filetype.txt file
(/usr/local/share/vim/vim63/doc/filetype.txt) to see what it supports
out of the box.

Thanks again.
