Hi, please excuse my ignorance. I am wanting to use Programmers Notepad to make the editing of a few specific text files easier.
They are all comma separated files, each line beginning with either a number or a command. I have played around with a couple of the existing Scheme files but cannot really understand where to start (I am not a programmer myself). Can anyone please point me in the right direction (except out of the door please).
A couple of examples of the type of data are below…
5, 9, 272.12.50, 89.10.20, 9.5630, 1.491, F2, GT
(I want to identify those lines which begin with specific numbers and highlight the entire line up to but not including the data in fields 7 and beyond)
At the moment this kind of specialised highlighting is quite complicated to do with Programmer’s Notepad – it would involve writing some C++ code. The built-in support for user syntax highlighting is limited to more normal programming language constructs.
