Ticket #618 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
Minimalistic syntax highlighter?
|Reported by:||Floyd-ATC||Owned by:|
How about including a minimalistic syntax highlighter that only distinguishes between code, pod and comments? I.e something like this:
- First non-blank char is #? It's a comment.
- First char is a =? Everything up to =cut is pod.
- Everything else is code, including code with trailing # comments
This would be less CPU intensive than the other highlighters, which cause lag and stutter while editing. I know how to tell keywords from strings and variables anyway.
