    [numbercol]
    \=

    It says

    Yes, that was an error I forgot to fix before posting it.

    I have a few really tricky ones for you:
    Code:
    #define x printf("") /* comment */
    #define x printf("/*") /* comment */
    #define x printf("//")
    #define x printf(" /* " // "*/");
    /* #define x x */
    // /*
    #define x /**/
    I'm currently re-writing codeform. The new version is 1.2.0 and it should be ready in a week or so (maybe two).

    Thumbs up

    Code:
    #define x printf("") /* comment */
    #define x printf("/*") /* comment */
    #define x printf("//")
    #define x printf(" /* " // "*/");
    /* #define x x */
    // /*
    #define x /**/

    What are its features?

    SiavoshKC's prog does this

    Code:
    #define x printf("") /* comment */
    #define x printf("/*") /* comment */
    #define x printf("//")
    #define x printf(" /* " // "*/");
    /* #define x x */
    // /*
    #define x /**/
    and Martin's does this

    Code:
    #define x printf("") /* comment */
    #define x printf([COLOR=RED]"/*") /* comment */
    #define x printf("//")
    #define x printf(" /* " // "*/");
    /* #define x x */
    [COLOR=GREEN]// /*
    #define x /**/
    and dwks' codeform

    Code:
    #define x printf("") /* comment */
    #define x printf("/*") /* comment */
    #define x printf("//")
    #define x printf(" /* " // "*/");
    /* #define x x */
    // /*
    #define x /**/
    which, by my reckoning, puts SiavoshKC's CPP Code Painter in the lead at the moment.

    So it's still tied with Vim, then:
    Code:
    #define x printf("") /* comment */
    #define x printf("/*") /* comment */
    #define x printf("//")
    #define x printf(" /* "// "*/");
    /* #define x x */
    // /*
    #define x /**/

    How about:
    Code:
    #if !defined DOODAH
    #endif
    Most editors/ides I've used handle the '#if' but omit highlighting for the whole of #if !defined'.

    It colors everything as a preprocessor directive.
    Code:
    #if defined DOODAH
    #endif

    Sorry, I meant some editors that just highlight the preprocessor directive itself would only highlight the #if and leave the '!defined DOODAH' unaffected. I note that msvc2005 can handle this but scite/wscite does not (and probably any other editor that uses the scintilla widget).

    Code::Blocks highlights the whole text. It does use the scintilla widget
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I'm not describing highlighting the entire line, only the preprocessor directive itself.

    You can configure the scintilla widget to behave in a similar fashion with regards to highlighting preprocessor directives as msvc.

    But if you do so, it will not highlight the whole of that line containing that particular preprocessor directive ie, you'll get
    Code:
    //scintilla does this if configured to highlight only the directive:
    #if !defined DOODAH
    instead of
    Code:
    
    #if !defined DOODAH
    As far as I know, code::blocks doesn't yet implement this feature of the scintilla widget.

    Note that when so configured the scintilla widget will highlight other preprocessor lines as expected, eg
    Code:
    #define BLAH_BLAH
    #ifndef HOOHAH

    Oh! I see your point.

    My code painter will search for specific keywords in preprocessor directive line and will highlight them.

    Code:
    #if !defined CPP
    It works now but it is not ideal.
