Is there an NSIS syntax plugin for GEDIT?

WinMerge has an amazing syntax highlighting for .nsi files - but when printed it all turns into black & white (even on color printers).

I am thinking perhaps of using gedit (the one that comes with Ubuntu Linux) for that purpose. It also has impressive (and printable) syntax highlighting - but not for NSIS.

Another option (if available) is to use the editor built into Visual Studio 2005.

Any idea how I can get printable syntax highlighting for .nsi files?

Thanks,
Victor

You could see it as a challenge to build and share your own syntax plugin for gedit

Quick AVI Creator - Quick and easy convert from DVD/MPEG/AVI/MKV to AVI/MP4/MKV
Quick AVI Creator entirely edited with NSIS and entirely upgraded to Unicode NSIS

I would be more than happy to do this when project schedule eases up a little bit. In the meanwhile, I have discovered that the .ini plugin works pretty well for .nsi files. It's not perfect, but as a quick workaround it does pretty nice job.

You need to manually select that syntax highligting mode:

Hope this helps for now.
