I want to create a custom Language, with its own custom Syntax Highlighting.
Notepad++, a Windows-only SciTE/Scintilla based text editor, allowed me to create a custom "Language", and now, in Linux, I want to reproduce the same thing.
I need(?) to use SciTE/Scintilla because (as far as I know) it is the only plain-text editor which can display different size fonts in the same text-file (e.g., default-font= 12pt, comment-font=24pt).
I used the comments font to display a complex script (alphabet) in a larger font. Please let me know if there is any other plain-text editor which does this.
I assume this is a feature of SciTE/Scintilla (and not of Notepad++). Some of the magic is possibly (probably?) done in files such as: /usr/share/scite/.properties
Notepad++ has a GUI interface to set up a new language or syntax, but I could use some direction on exactly how to go about it in SciTE.
