IDE ACL/ARBORTEXT

Hello experts!!

I would like to know if any of you know any development environment
which recognizes ACL commands and allows me to identify key words like
functions, conditionals etc in colors. This would be pretty useful!

Thanks in advance.

Hi Paulette--

I almost exclusively use jEdit, with an ACL plugin I developed myself. You can download the program from www.jedit.org, and the ACL plugin from

Clay! The eclipse integration sounds good, I will try to find more information about it, if I found anything I'll keep you informed.

Let us know if you find one 😉


I have had luck in the past with editors/IDEs which have customisable
parsing, especially if they already have support for Perl (Perl and ACL
are very close in syntax). For example I wrote my own ACL parser for
highlighting in Vim. I took the existing Perl parser and modified it to
understand ACL keywords and syntax.

Hello.
Ultra Edit can do.
I had already post a message on this, with a screenshot.
Look in the archives for a subject called "A tip: Code editor for ACL".
If you don't find it, let me know an I will try to re-send the mail.
Regards,
Sébastien

I use Emerald Editor (formerly Crimson Editor), and built a syntax highlighting/coloring schema for ACL. Works really well, and uses bracket/paren matching, which is crazy helpful.

From: SAUVAGE Sébastien [

I've been using EditPlus for ACL work - http://www.editplus.com/


I have a syntax colouring file if anyone's interested...

I agree that bracket matching is one of the most valuable features of a code editor. jEdit has this, and most of the other ones mentioned probably do as well.

Many of these editors have nice plugins to add additional capability, too. For example, jEdit has a nice XML add-on that does a lot of useful things, including pretty-printing an XML file (with elements indented like a tree view). You might not want to save the reformatted view, but it's very helpful to temporarily apply it to see the structure of the content you're looking at. jEdit also has a very slick XSLT plugin that lets you apply XSL transformations to either a file or an open buffer, and an XPath tool that lets you see the nodeset returned by applying an XPath expression against an XML file.

When the acl customization is numerous andsome integration with Windchill. Eclipse plugin is convenient for project code management.
