digitalmars.D - Scintilla Lexer for D

Folks FYI,

Scintilla now has a lexer for D.  At the moment it is available only via CVS
but should appear in the next release.  This will make all scintilla-based
editors and IDEs capable of supporting D very easily.

Sounds great! Thanks for doing this. I took a glance at the source (I think I found the right file): http://scintilla.cvs.sourceforge.net/scintilla/scintilla/src/LexD.cxx?revision=1.1&view=markup It looks like you've even managed to support nested comments. That's fantastic! Do you have any idea how often the Scintilla team releases new versions? I can't wait to try this out. ;) jcc7

30 // We use custom qualifiers since it is not clear what D allows. 31 32 static bool IsWordStart(int ch) { 33 return isascii(ch) && (isalpha(ch) || ch == '_'); 34 } 35 36 static bool IsWord(int ch) { 37 return isascii(ch) && (isalnum(ch) || ch == '_'); 38 } I think D allows unicode alphas in identifiers. See std.uni.isUniAlpha(dchar u); http://digimars.com/d/phobos/std_uni.html There's a C version in the dmd front end source. (unialpha.c)

There was a lengthy exchange on the subject in the archives. I concluded D lexer needs its own qualifiers. This will allow to extend beyond ascii. I am curious what gdc allows. Probably the best is to lift code from the compiler itself if reasonably contained.

Hmm.. My Scintilla changes supported D and its nesting comments for a lo= ng = time, almost a year and a half. This guy even emailed me a while back asking if my changes could be = incorporated in Scintilla and I said sure. http://wiki.dprogramming.com/DLex/HomePage ~ = http://wiki.dprogramming.com/SciTE/HomePage o-kay.

heheh .. I knew there's already a D port of Scintilla, and I was gonna say that, but I know next to nothing about Scintilla, and I wasn't sure if there was a fundamental difference between this one and that one, so I didn't say anything, fearing that I would only put myself in an embarrassing position.

I knew about it, too. But I did my research and found out that this code was rejected by scintilla. It was never resubmitted. It was based on an old CPP lexer and had several problems including a questionable method of dealing with nested comments. The best way to get it in was to modify the existing CPP lexer and use standard mechanisms for nesting comments. I also added folding.

Anyone know where this is? I found this post on dsource: http://www.dsource.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=913&sid= 573b789ce96dc0678ff324bc34228c65 But there doesn't seem to be any followup there. Nor is the project listed on this Scintilla ports page: http://scintilla.sourceforge.net/ScintillaRelated.html I could contact AgentOrange directly, I suppose . . . TK

Cool. I've made Trac aware of this lexer, and now dsource.org will have syntax highlighting for the repos browser, in addition to the wiki pages. That is, when I can put it up on the server. Thanks!! BA

Sounds good. It'll be really nice to finally have syntax highlighting for the source browser. (By the way, just yesterday I found a small problem in D2HTML's syntax highlighting. It'd be nice to have a better highlighter for the wiki pages.) jcc7
