Notepad++ simple GP syntax highlighting

Post by Spiralo-Idioïde » Jul 3rd, '19, 13:41

Just few days ago i began to use the GP's textual libraries. And it's quite not user friendly with a basic textual editor. So I decided to use the user defined language feature of notepad ++.

Okay V2 Now !

I changed some things in the basic highlighting, but the main thing is the addition of the ability for Notepad++ to recognize class and global functions.

The main code for highlighting :

Code: Select all

<NotepadPlus>
    <UserLang name="GP" ext="gp" udlVersion="2.1">
        <Settings>
            <Global caseIgnored="no" allowFoldOfComments="no" foldCompact="no" forcePureLC="0" decimalSeparator="0" />
            <Prefix Keywords1="no" Keywords2="no" Keywords3="no" Keywords4="no" Keywords5="no" Keywords6="no" Keywords7="no" Keywords8="no" />
        </Settings>
        <KeywordLists>
            <Keywords name="Comments">00// 01 02 03 04</Keywords>

You need to copy the code to a .xml file and then import into notepad++ with the user defined language feature in the language panel. It will be easy to modify for anyone who wants to do so.


Code for functions :

Use the file in attachments and rename it to functionList.xml, then replace the original file in main notepadd++ folder.



Known Bugs :
  • When opening a file with GP code and selecting GP as language, the folding of blocks might display without any sense. The only workaround I found is to copy/paste the code in a new file to have it displayed correctly.
Others
-Not all primitives are highlighted


I'll add more screenshots later.
Attachments
functionList.gpp
Change extension to .xml and replace original file

Thank you for this!
I've been trying to do this exact thing but it seems you beat me to it lol

I'll try adding more primitives
