Are you familiar with JEdit? It is a very nice, and popular editor
written in Java. It has code folding and all sorts of plugins.
It is quite easy to write new edit modes, though there are some limitations.
The limitations are syntactical constructs that JEdit can't easily highlight.
To install the edit mode you must first install JEdit. After that you
should find a jedit/modes directory under your home directory. In that
directory, drop the attached files (to unzip).
NOTE:If you already use JEdit and have some custom modes, you will not
want to overwrite your catalog file. Instead, copy the entries from this
catalog file into the existing catalog file.
It is also possible to drop the mode files in the global JEdit/modes
directory and add the new mode declarations to the global JEdit catalog
The modes assume three different types of CodeWorker files:
Highlights template-based scripts, nested in <% %> or @ @
