[PLUG] Writing Emacs Modes

Hi all,

At my company, we currently have a collection of elisp utilities that
we use to enhance our perl development process (think cperl-mode
extensions, except its not an actual mode). The problem is that there
is a good bit of business-specific code in there, so what I'd really
like to do is factor out the generic functionality and turn it into a
minor mode that could be used by anyone.

I'm somewhat familiar with elisp at this point, but I've never
actually written a mode for Emacs, so I'm just looking for some advice
or helpful resources that'll get me started. Any opinions on
O'Reilly's "Writing GNU Emacs Extensions"? Any other wisdom in
