Syntax Highliting

i know it says in the FAQ that they are no plans for it. But i have a whole team using WinSCP to develop a PHP site. it would be really cool if someone made a plugin or something to color the syntax of php

Is winscp going to ever support it?

Re: Syntax Highliting

No. Why? Use external editor!

What problems? Isn't it better to solve the problem, than to spend months implementing full-features internal editor?

How about making internal editor replaceable by using a plugin or something? I believe that very soon we'd have VIM for WinSCP ... I'd prefer integrated solutions instead of nonintegrated, as it's much simpler to use an integrated one on *khm khm* USB sticks ... until then I'll be stuck with unintegrated notepad2 which I'd rather not use...

Implementing plugin support would be even more difficult than syntax highlighting :-)
Also you would need to have file with plugin and associated configuration. I do not see any advantage for you comparing to an external editor.

...apart from mobility on USB stick? :mrgreen:

Just joking. Ummm LoadLibrary()? GetProcAddress()? Allowing a couple of callbacks? Ah nvm, perhaps I don't know what I'm talking about ;)

I have not implemeted the internal editor. It is standard Windows editing control. To add plugin support would mean to reimplement it by myself.
