Create a User Defined Language from existing
Bence Gyula Bujtor
I wish to make my own Assembly language for my project.
Is there a way to use the existing Assembly in Notepad++ by creating my own version based on what’s already in?
there is no direct export/import way to do this.
What you need to do is
Open langs.xml file which is either under %APPDATA%\notepad++ or within
installation directory, depends on your configuration, copy the keywords and put it into
the new UDL keywords box(es).
Instead of the file you can use the GUI -> Settings->StyleConfigurator->YOUR_LANGUAGE
and click through the names under Style to get the listed keywords.
will there be a way to do this in the future? directly. because I also want to modify a few aspects of the Language I use.
Just to make sure that you mean UDL1 based on UDL2.
This should be easy enough since every UDL is based on textual definition.
You will never be able to create a UDL that is based on Scintilla Lexer since these are implemented in C.
