• MPL Language Definition file for Notepad++

    From stizzed@77:1/104 to All on Mon May 18 11:06:41 2020
    Does anyone have an MPL language definition file for Notepad++ they would share? Although it should be easy starting with Pascal I'd rather not build one from scratch if I don't need to.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you're talking about syntax highlighting you can just use Pascal, its the same syntax as Turbo Pascal.

    Highlighting and coloration. Does MPL strictly hold to Pascal syntax and keywords? I have noted subtle differences and so want to create an MPL specific language configuration in Notepad++ for MPL. Without access to a complete list of differences (and Mystic BBS specific keywords and syntax) I'm working to find them by looking at others' code and through trial and error.
    I was hoping that perhaps someone out there had already done so.

    Thanks very much!

    Yes its the same syntax as Turbo Pascal for all things highlighting.

    (Unless you tell it to use IPL syntax, then its the same syntax as Iniquity Programming Language).

    Thanks again g00r00! I'll tackle it from that direction.
