That's worth knowing - I hadn't tested it, having not yet had Mercury
and Objective-C close to each other.

I guess the thing that has irritated me most so for is that I'm one
thoe people who like syntax colouring and autoindent in editors -
I'm used to the strange colouring in Mercury programs, but have
you ever seen a Mercury program indednted as obj-C?

This is probably not worh going to the effort of changing the
Mercury suffix for though - it will just continue to be a low
level annoyance.
