- Subject: Emacs lua-mode.el mod for definition of word

I've used Emacs' lua-mode for a long time and often wondered why '_' was
included in the definition of a word. This is unlike the other
programming language modes I've used.
So I looked at the source and found the following lines in
;; _ needs to be part of a word, or the regular expressions will
;; incorrectly regognize end_ to be matched by "\\<end\\>"!
(modify-syntax-entry ?_ "w")
I commented out the last line just to see what would happen:
;; (modify-syntax-entry ?_ "w")
It worked perfectly for me. The handling of "end_" seemed to be correct.
It was not highlighted as a keyword.
Perhaps I've missed something, but it seems to be working for me so I
thought I'd share it.
