UDL limitations -- what's the alternate for syntax highlighting?



  • I’m trying to do a UDL for the GIFT format, which uses blank lines as a delimiter (for question separators). It seems that there’s no way to get UDL to recognize blank lines (I tried ((EOL))((EOL)) to no avail. I could not find any documentation for supplying regex’s inside the UDL definition, either.

    So, is there another way to achieve syntax highlighting for GIFT inside NPP (via plug-in, etc.)?



  • @fuhrmanator

    may I ask for what you need to define the blank lines?
    If I understand this correctly, it is only used to let the GIFT engine know when
    an new question starts.
    Even if it could be done, it doesn’t get visualized.

    What am I missing?

    Cheers
    Claudia
