How is this Highlighting generated by ST3 and why



Hopefully you can see that everything up to

WLM007.cpp:37:4: error: expected expression is highlighted.

This is the outputted text after a build. I’m trying to diagnose a problem. I was wondering if someone could tell me what part of the ST3 API is doing it, why etc.

There’s an extremely good chance I’m barking up the wrong tree, but I’d just like to know what is the origin of the higlighting pls ?

Thanks !



Highlighting is always done using a syntax definition and a color scheme. You’re likely using the built-in Make Output syntax definition.

Yes, specifically you pointed out in another thread that you’re using the syntax key in your build to get the syntax highlighting:



Ah ha & Thank you ! That does indeed help
