Help talk:GeSHi

From Rosetta Code

Suggestion x 2

Currently, it seems D's (also others, like Java, C etc.) syntax coloring high-light a Statement keyword by color #b1b100,eg:
return new int[] ;
It may be only me, it will be looked better if a darker color is used for Statement keyword, eg. that of int keyword (#993333):
return new int[] ;
or, in similar but darker color(#666600):
return new int[] ;
Besides, the origianl <pre> tag allowed attribute modifying, eg.<pre style="background-color:#ffe">. But the syntax coloring tag will remove it, eg. <d style="background-color:#ffe"> => <pre class="d">. It seems the class is redundant as coloring is already applied. It will be nice that the syntax coloring tag can be more flexible.

Current syntax highlighting for D: <lang D>return new int[] ;</lang>

Looks a bit better, now that we've switched to class-based coloring.--Short Circuit 21:45, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Page error?

I saw this error message:

Warning: stristr() [function.stristr]: Empty delimiter in /home/shortcir/public_html/ on line 2127

Don't know if that's anything anyone can fix. --Mwn3d 13:32, 8 March 2008 (MST)

Does that still happen? We've been through a few upgrades, and when I tweak the source code badly, things like this can happen. --Short Circuit 21:48, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
I haven't seen it anymore. I promise if I do I'll email you directly. --Mwn3d 22:17, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Wikipedia's version?

When you try to use an unsupported language via <source lang="lang">, you get an error that lists quite a few more supported languages. Is there a way to use the version of GeSHi that wikipedia is using?

GeSHi Error: GeSHi could not find the language forth (using path /usr/local/apache/common-local/php-1.5/lib/GeSHi- (code 2)

You need to specify a language like this: <source lang="html">...</source>

Supported languages for syntax highlighting:

actionscript, ada, apache, applescript, asm, asp, autoit, bash, blitzbasic, bnf, c, c_mac, caddcl, cadlisp, cfdg, cfm, cpp, cpp-qt, csharp, css, d, delphi, diff, div, dos, eiffel, fortran, freebasic, gml, groovy, html4strict, idl, ini, inno, io, java, java5, javascript, latex, lisp, lua, matlab, mirc, mpasm, mysql, nsis, objc, ocaml, ocaml-brief, oobas, oracle8, pascal, perl, php, php-brief, plsql, python, qbasic, rails, reg, robots, ruby, sas, scheme, sdlbasic, smalltalk, smarty, sql, tcl, text, thinbasic, tsql, vb, vbnet, vhdl, visualfoxpro, winbatch, xml, xpp, z80

How to create GeSHi script file

The help page says "Feel free to provide a GeSHi script file.". However, there is no information on:

  • Where to find information about the script file (with Googe, I found this page).
  • Where to get a sample script file that could be used as base for creating script for a new language. I did not find one from the above link.
  • If I make a syntax file, where can I send it to be included in Rosetta Code?

I agree, it would be nice if there was a page containing the GeSHi files. Also, I can't find a guide anywhere, so can someone helpful make one and link it from Help:GeSHi? ~ BR 20:21, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
This page was pretty useless, so I redirected it to Help:Syntax Highlighting, which has the things you request (or at least links to them). —Underscore (Talk) 21:45, 7 December 2009 (UTC)


Created a geshi lexer for autohotkey: autohotkey.php.
Please add to rosettacode. Thanks, --Tinku99 16:49, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
