As I have promised it in a later post, here is a first version of the OpenOffice.org extension for syntax highlighting. There are still some things to improve like:
- reading the languages files: this could certainly be optimized to avoid parsing the language file at each parsing time.
- generating the languages files: add a parameter to remove the new lines in the XML definitions of the language.
- present the display names of the languages and sort them by alphabetical order in the language selection dialog.
- add some error dialogs for the user to understand problems.
Do not hesitate to report any bug here if you find some. COOoder.oxt
