Tutorial :Pascal syntax highlight in Visual Studio?


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.



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.


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)


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.


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.
