So far this has been working out very well for me. I’m wokring on a vim colors file that italicises string literals and bolds comments, but I haven’t really gotten aorund to it yet. I’m interested to see what other people think. What keeps you to using syntax highlighting? Or, why did you ditch it?
I usually use syntax highlighting purely to find unterminated strings. I don’t mind if I’m using notepad.exe to code or something more powerful.
The string problem is one of the few cases I find syntax highlighting useful, which is why I’d like to get a vim colour scheme set up for the two previously mentioned cases.
