Tutorial :Pascal syntax highlight in Visual Studio?



Question:

I'm writing in C# the next generation of an old app originally written in Delphi. I often have to look in the old code and wondered if there's anyway to install Pascal syntax highlighting in the Visual Studio 2008 editor.

TIA.


Solution:1

I'm not an expert but you might want to look at Delphi Prism which seems to combine a Delphi compiler into Visual Studio. It might be overkill however.


Solution:2

http://blog.cumps.be/visual-studio-2008-and-php-coloring/ - maybe this could be adjusted from PHP for delphi/pascal

Planned project:

http://www.codeplex.com/Delphi4VisualStudio - this (one day) will support syntax highlighting (but it seems to be overkill too)


Solution:3

I know the guy working on Delphi4VisualStudio. The project doesn't seem to be active any more, but I know he had syntax highlighting working in the editor. You could always ask him for just that piece.


Solution:4

I could do it in about 1-2 day's work, but I'm busy trying to make ends meet (seriously). Let me know if you want me to do it.

Prior work (showing [almost] only the syntax highlighting):

Edit: Don't mark me down if this isn't allowed - just let me know. I'd seriously do it for free if I had any spare time at all, I just don't right now.
