Hi Paul,

An easy way to do this is to rename your file as model.R. The syntax for BUGS is almost identical to the syntax for R, and BUGS doesn’t care what the model extension is. 

Wish I could say that I thought of that but kudos go to Matthew Schofield.

    I have a student here who wants to edit an OpenBugs file named
    "model.txt" in Emacs. I can't understand how to tell Emacs to use a
    bugs mode so that things like M-; understand what to do.
    If you have an idea, let me know.
    We don't want to run the bugs code with an emacs session, we just want
    to edit the bugs text model file and then we can run with R2OpenBugs
    or something else.
