Analyst Syntax Highlighting

Analyst Syntax Highlighting

The following is an Analyst Syntax Highlighter for Notepad++ that I've built and use everyday.

It assumes the following best practices are being utilized
In particular:
1) All user defined variables begin with _ and all global variables (in the define section) with __g syntax. This clearly distinguishes them as user variables from field names and ^system variables and the context in which they can be utilized.
2) It also assumes you are either copying the text out of the Prognosis Analyst dialogue into Notepad++ or referencing it as a .rule file.

Note: Many / Most of our legacy out of the box analysts due not follow these best practices but the newer ones do.. but it they also haven't made it into documentation.

If my answer helped you today, please be sure to mark the resolved button to assist others.
