Custom Language not recognized



  • Hi, im creating a Language Definition file, building upon the Lua one that comes with Notepad++.

    My first question - is there a way to get some error messages a kind of log that notepad++ leaves if the language defintion file i place in C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\plugins\APIs
    is invalid?

    If by any chance somembody wants to take a look at the result , here is a paste-bin link:

    Thank you and have a fine day

    I don’t think there is any way to know if something goes wrong (short of modifying the program’s source code).

    One issue I am aware of is that some function help may not appear if the entries in the language help file are not in strict alphabetical order.



  • @Jim-Dailey
    Yes, i am aware of this, thats why i sorted the Functions in the API accordingly alphabetically.
    I also presume lowercase is ascii lower - aka a - z < A - Z ?

    Zebra should appear BEFORE eagle. That is, Upper-case letters are lexically less than lower-case letters.
