Q:

How does the IDDE know which words to syntax highlight?  Can I add my own words to this list?

 

----------


A:

The IDDE references the .INI files in the ~\VisualDSP\System\  directory to know what needs highlighting.

 

For example, to add a new keyword in SHARC assembly files, edit SHARCASM.INI with the keyword and specify how it should be highlighted (for example, as a preprocessor macro, register, mnemonic, etc.)
