Re: Testing syntax parsing in editors (especially emacs)by LanX (Cardinal)
|on Mar 15, 2021 at 19:00 UTC||Need Help??|
my solution so far for emacs on linux
the -Q is not necessary, it's just speeding up startup by not loading any ini-files
the rm $file.html was necessary, otherwise the html isn't saved.
the grep is a cheap workaround for parsing the html.
Please note that the names of the CSS-classes are not 1-to-1 to emacs faces for Perl, but the included attributes - like colors - are.
As a generic option also for other editors (if they allow remote execution)
It's also possible to trigger a PS or PDF save ...
A pdftohtml -xml generates again a a similar <xml> output which can be parsed for correctness.
