( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
After reading this thread: Feature Request: Adding Colors to Source Code i got kindof carried away and made a Javascript rip-off of Cory Johns' excellent Syntax::Highlight::Perl module.
Here it is:
To try, cut&paste into a html file, run it in IE or Mozilla and click anywhere in the perl code you see.
<html> <head> <style> .quotedString { color: #0000FF; } .comment { color: #999999; } .operator { color: #00CCCC; } .builtinVariable { color: #CCCC00; } .variableSpecifier { color: #FF0000; } .keyword { color: #9900FF; } .builtinFunction { color: #FF00FF; } .identifier { color: #009900; } .number { color: #9999FF; } </style> <script> var ie = document.all != null; var moz = !ie && document.getElementById != null && document.layers == + null; function emulateHTMLModel() { // copied from http://www.webfx.nu/dhtml/ieemu/htmlmodel.html // This function is used to generate a html string for the text pr +operties/methods // It replaces '\n' with "<BR"> as well as fixes consecutive white + spaces // It also repalaces some special characters function convertTextToHTML(s) { s = s.replace(/\&/g, "&amp;").replace(/</g, "&lt;").replace(/> +/g, "&gt;").replace(/\n/g, "<BR>").replace(/\t/g, " "); //tachyon while (/\s\s/.test(s)) s = s.replace(/\s\s/, "&nbsp; "); return s.replace(/\s/g, " "); } HTMLElement.prototype.__defineSetter__("innerText", function (sTex +t) { this.innerHTML = convertTextToHTML(sText); return sText; }); var tmpGet; HTMLElement.prototype.__defineGetter__("innerText", tmpGet = funct +ion () { var r = this.ownerDocument.createRange(); r.selectNodeContents(this); return r.toString(); }); } if (moz) emulateHTMLModel(); // Regular Expressions largely copied from Cory Johns (darkness@yossma +n.net) excellent Syntax::Highlight::Perl module (see http://search.cp +an.org/~johnsca/) var re; var RE = new Array; // quoted string re = /('|"|`).*?\1/; RE[0] = new RegExp(re); // comment re = /\#.*?[\r\n]+/; //tachyon RE[1] = new RegExp(re); // operator re = /xor|\.\.\.|and|not|\|\|\=|cmp|\>\>\=|\<\<\=|\<\=\>|\&\&\=|or|\=\ +>|\!\~|\^\=|\&\=|\|\=|\.\=|x\=|\%\=|\/\=|\*\=|\-\=|\+\=|\=\~|\*\*|\-\ +-|\.\.|\|\||\&\&|\+\+|\-\>|ne|eq|\!\=|\=\=|ge|le|gt|lt|\>\=|\<\=|\>\> +|\<\<|\,|\=|\:|\?|\^|\||x|\%|\/|\*|\<|\&|\\|\~|\!|\>|\.|\-|\+ /; RE[2] = new RegExp(re); // builtin variables re = /\$\#?_|\$(?:\^[LAECDFHIMOPRSTWX]|[0-9&`'+*.\/|,\\";#%=\-~^:?!@\$ +<>()\[\]])|\$\#?ARGV(?:\s*\[)?|\$\#?INC\s*\[|\$(?:ENV|SIG|INC)\s*\{|\ +@(?:_|ARGV|INC)|\%(?:INC|ENV|SIG)/; RE[3] = new RegExp(re); // variable class specifiers re = /(?:(?:[\@\%\*]|\$\#?)\$*)/; RE[4] = new RegExp(re); // keyword re = /(continue|foreach|require|package|scalar|format|unless|local|un +til|while|elsif|next|last|goto|else|redo|sub|for|use|no|if|my)\b/; RE[5] = new RegExp(re); // builtin function re = /(getprotobynumber|getprotobyname|getservbyname|gethostbyaddr|ge +thostbyname|getservbyport|getnetbyaddr|getnetbyname|getsockname|getpe +ername|setpriority|getprotoent|setprotoent|getpriority|endprotoent|ge +tservent|setservent|endservent|sethostent|socketpair|getsockopt|getho +stent|endhostent|setsockopt|setnetent|quotemeta|localtime|prototype|g +etnetent|endnetent|rewinddir|wantarray|getpwuid|closedir|getlogin|rea +dlink|endgrent|getgrgid|getgrnam|shmwrite|shutdown|readline|endpwent| +setgrent|readpipe|formline|truncate|dbmclose|syswrite|setpwent|getpwn +am|getgrent|getpwent|ucfirst|sysread|setpgrp|shmread|sysseek|sysopen| +telldir|defined|opendir|connect|lcfirst|getppid|binmode|syscall|sprin +tf|getpgrp|readdir|seekdir|waitpid|reverse|unshift|symlink|dbmopen|se +mget|msgrcv|rename|listen|chroot|msgsnd|shmctl|accept|unpack|exists|f +ileno|shmget|system|unlink|printf|gmtime|msgctl|semctl|values|rindex| +substr|splice|length|msgget|select|socket|return|caller|delete|alarm| +ioctl|index|undef|lstat|times|srand|chown|fcntl|close|write|umask|rmd +ir|study|sleep|chomp|untie|print|utime|mkdir|atan2|split|crypt|flock| +chmod|BEGIN|bless|chdir|semop|shift|reset|link|stat|chop|grep|fork|du +mp|join|open|tell|pipe|exit|glob|warn|each|bind|sort|pack|eval|push|k +eys|getc|kill|seek|sqrt|send|wait|rand|tied|read|time|exec|recv|eof|c +hr|int|ord|exp|pos|pop|sin|log|abs|oct|hex|tie|cos|vec|END|ref|map|di +e|\-C|\-b|\-S|\-u|\-t|\-p|\-l|\-d|\-f|\-g|\-s|\-z|uc|\-k|\-e|\-O|\-T| +\-B|\-M|do|\-A|\-X|\-W|\-c|\-R|\-o|\-x|lc|\-w|\-r)\b/; RE[6] = new RegExp(re); // identifier (variable, subroutine, packages) re = /(?:(?:[A-Za-z_]|::)(?:\w|::)*)/; RE[7] = new RegExp(re); // number re = /0x[\da-fA-F]+|[_.\d]+([eE][-+]?\d+)?/; RE[8] = new RegExp(re); var classes = new Array("quotedString", "comment", "operator", "built +inVariable", "variableSpecifier", "keyword", "builtinFunction", "iden +tifier", "number"); /* This is the actual highlighting function. * Takes an html object as argument * returns nothing * replaces the text inside the html object with colored text using <s +pan>'s * css is defined separately.

At the moment it's rather colorfull but that's just to show what it can.

Perhaps it could be discussed here if we could use it on the monestary.
If you find bugs or have suggestions for improvements, you might want to pm/mail/call/write me.
