25. Editing RPM Spec Files

This mode is used for editing spec files for building RPM packages. It is automatically invoked for buffers visiting any file ending with an extension of `.spec?' or `.spec.in'.

The mode much like C mode except for the syntax of comments. It uses the same keymap as C mode and has the same variables for customizing indentation. It has its own abbrev table and its own syntax table. See section `Top' in CC Mode Manual., for details.

Turning on RPM spec mode calls the value of the variable rpm-spec-mode-hook with no args, if that value is non-nil.

To configure this package, type:

  M-x customize-group RET rpm-spec RET

25.1 About RPM

The RPM Package Manager (RPM) is a powerful command line driven package management system capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying, querying, and updating computer software packages. Each software package consists of an archive of files along with information about the package like its version, a description, and the like. There is also a related API ("Application Program Interface"), permitting advanced developers to bypass 'shelling out' to a command line, and to manage such transactions from within a native coding language.

For more information, see http://www.rpm.org/.
