Hi David,

I recently re-jigged some of my emacs defaults and was surprised how
much easier emacs customization has become.  With recent emacs versions
you can do the customization with easy point-and-click menus that will
then (if you click on the "save" buttons) add it to your ~/.emacs file.

Just follow the menus:

  -> Customize Emacs
   -> Browse Customization Groups
    -> Programming
     -> Languages
      -> C
       -> C++ mode-hook
