File behind syntax highlighting in the editor?

Postby paues » Mon Nov 14, 2016 7:51 am

Is there by any chance a file, for instance containing scores of regular expressions, that control how the the syntax of the code in the editor is highlighted? If so, would it be possible to see it?

The highlighting algorithm is hardcoded in EViews. So there isn't an adjustable configuration file. What is it that you wish to change?

I don't want to change a thing. I would just like to see the highlighting algorithm in order to replicate it in my text editor of choice Sublime Text 3.

It wasn't entirely clear from your response but I guess you can't share the algorithm?

Send an email to support@eviews.com and we can discuss the basic algorithm.
