mosel-mode

Mosel is a language for defining LP and IP models, used by Xpress-MP among other solvers. I couldn’t find an Emacs mode for editing Mosel, so here’s a small contribution which does some syntax highlighting. It also lives at EmacsWiki.

  "Major mode for Mosel highlighting.")

Installation

Paste it into your .emacs file and execute it with C-x C-e. When you edit a .mos file, it will automatically go into mosel-mode.
