  • A suggestion from a developer

    After evaluating this wonderful software, I have purchased a license. And wish to add a suggestion to your next product release. Suggestion: add "document syntax highlight" (like PSPPad Editor). This function is very useful when reading compared program codes.

    Thanks to Beyond Compare.

    Hi Zach,

    Thanks for your feedback! We're working on syntax highlighting for version 3.

      Please ensure I have the option to disable syntax highlighting.

          And a method to provide our own syntax highlighters, (unless you plant to provide a highlighter for every code and scripting langauge ever invented).

            You'll be able to use regular expressions to define grammars.

                The parser we're working on won't support arbitrary nesting, so if you had a second #if nested within the #if 0 clause it would stop at the first #endif encountered, rather than keeping track of how many #endif's it has to encounter before it's done. At least initially we probably won't change that, since it would complicate things quite a bit. Since that's the case we also aren't likely to include "#if 0" to "#endif" as one of the default items, but it will be easy enough to add if you want it.

                You can do the same thing in BC2 already, with the same caveat. Just select "Edit Current Rules" from the File Viewer's "Tools" menu when you have a pair of C/C++ files loaded, switch to the "Importance" tab, and click the top-most "New" button on the right side of the dialog. In the new dialog just put "#if 0" in the "Starts With" edit and "#endif" in the "Ends with" edit.
