View Full Version : How to create syntax highlight?! (OS X)

06 June 2007, 12:59 PM
Hey all,

I am in the process of learning mel and I must say that I am quite happy with the possibilaties for a maya artist to reach furtur with mel.
I have also been looking in to creating my own mel editor for os x - but before jumping in to the show I was hoping to get some guidiance to where to start.

What I wist to include in the editor is:
Syntax highlight
line numbering
Multiple scripts
save function.

Now as a n00b in the field it sound all fine and easy and I have been looking at the apple developer site plus some other sites - but I am still very confused to how a text editor uses syntax highlight and auto complete !?

So any info on it or hints to what I should be googleing would be super.
Thnak you in advance.
