Anything for REXX/oRexx?

Post by u00000000 »

Would anyone happen to have, or would want to make, a syntax highlighter for REXX?

Okay, since nobody has it, I had a stab at it. Please let me know if the attached files have any issues. If not it would be great to include it in the next release.

It was originally based off an old wordfile for Ultraedit, but I added a bunch of new ooRexx stuff and common folds. One thing I could figure out how to get going is the command completion when used as a message. i.e. if I type "subSt" I can bring up a list for auto complete, but if I type "MyString~subSt" it will not. Anyway to tell the text editor that a new command should start after the ~ character? It is currently just listed as a "symbol"

By the way, is there an easy way to manually add your own? Seems an "official" download is the only way? I ended up editing the .ini file myself to get it working.
