Syntax colouring enhancement request

Post by Helpdesk » Sun Jul 29, 2012 6:37 am

Syntax colouring. I prefer the following style (I called it "strict" :-) ):

1. Background color is white.

2. Default text: black color, normal (not bold, not italic, not underlined).

3. If identifier marked for export, it should be bold (include '*').

4. ASSERTs should be bold.

5. "SYSTEM" { Selector } should be red.

6. Comments (include "(*" and "*)" ) should be gray and italic.

7. URLs in comments should be blue, not italic, underlined.

8. Some keywords in comments (outside URLs) should be bold, not italic, yellow background: TODO, FIXME, XXX, TODO, NOTE, NOTES.

Only "ASSERT" keyword should be bold, not entire statement.
7, 8 -- lowest priority.

1 to 6 are now all possible. You can set the font colour and style for the three new syntax categories:
  • Exported identifiers
  • Assertions
  • SYSTEM Functions
