Arc de Triomphe clipart (2486 bytes)UltraEdit Support


Written by Geoff Eldridge.


UltraEdit (http://www.ultraedit.com/) has syntax highlighting. You can also grep multiple files to search for features, etc. A result box comes back and a double click will open the file and take you to the right line. You can also run DOS commands, with output redirected to a newly opened window.

The following is an Eiffel syntax highlighting file for UltraEdit. To install and test you need to update the following file with syntax description shown at the end of this message.

Just cut and paste into the file:

C:\Program Files\ULTRAEDT\wordfile.txt

or wherever you installed UltraEdit.

[ You may need to change the L6 - being the language number in my case to L5 or whatever the case maybe for your own setup. ]

Select Syntax Highlighting by the following menu strokes:

Advanced -> Configuration -> Syntax Highlighting

Don't forget to check out:
