Syntax Highlight: Filetype recognition

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Is it just me, or is this severely missing from Notepad++?

    If a file starts with #, regardless of the extension, it should be checked where it is Perl, Shell, whatever!

    How do I implement this?

      Yes, like mcedit (Midnight Commander) and vi, et al.  Can't be that hard to implement, I suppose, How easily does Np++ compile?

      How do I do this the proper way?

      How do I learn to participate on SF projects?
