New update of Gams-Mode (3.6)

There is a update for Gams-mode. It contains some bug fixes and a nice new feature: If you hit C-u C-c C-. you can search for an identifier. It finds the parameter and has several options like jump to the next occurrence, jump to the file, split the screen and also show the file where gams-mode found the parameter. All these possibilities are described at the bottom-line and are self-explaining (“decl” shows the declaration of the identifier).
 
 
 

Gams code in LaTeX documents

Edson Valle recently wrote a style for the package listings from LaTeX. It allows you to format Gams code nicely in your LaTeX documents.
Here is a small example taken from his post to the Gams mailing list:
Scalar X /1/;
Scalar Y;
Y = 2*X;
Display “This is the famous Y”, Y;
In your LaTeX document this would look like:
The only thing you have to do is write a file gams.tex with the style and include this file in your LaTeX document before \begin{document}.
Information on the package Listings can be found here: listings
The gams.tex file should look like this:
\usepackage{listings}
