Modes

Similar in concept to the modes on some UNIX editors, but a JED mode can offer anything from simple syntax highlighting to a heavily modified editing environment courtesy of the built in S-Lang interpreter, however most supplied and contributed modes are but simple syntax highlighting modes for a computer language or input/output filters for a file format, sometimes also offering something resembling auto indent and autocompletion.
