Backport Scintilla Perl lexer for wxWidgets 2.8.10?
|Reported by:||hjansen||Owned by:||azawawi|
wxWidgets 2.8.x only contains Scintilla 1.70 and the Perl lexer has improved significantly in later Scintilla versions (including support for features found in Perl 5.10).
But due to ABI compatibility concerns the wxWidgets folks are not willing to update Scintilla to a newer version in the 2.8 branch.
We _may_, however, be able to convince them to include a backported Perl lexer from Scintilla 1.77 in the wxStyledTextCtrl of Perl 2.8.10. (cf. http://lists.wxwidgets.org/pipermail/wx-dev/2009-February/111633.html and follow-ups).
Would be nice if anyone with better C++ knowledge than me could jump in and have a look.
It's rather urgent because the first release candidate for wxWidgets 2.8.10 is already out.
