    Default java syntax highlighting

    Hi all,

    I'm planning to possibly rewrite one of my programs to Java. I originally wrote it in Python as a school assignment, but it fails to please me to the full expectations. It is a dedicate editor for a music notation language called ABC. However, one of the MUSTS is that it has syntax-highlighting, but there is no lexer currently available for this language.
    Do you know any libraries that I could use to do the lexing for a custom language?
    I'm planning to write my program through the use of swing.

    Many greetings,

    Saulius

    Did you google for your problem? A quick search returns a lot of results.

    I do tend to make a habbit of exhausting Google to accomodate my problems.
    However, this time it hasn't yielded any obvious results, else I wouldn't be here.
    I've found quite a many topics on customizing coloring for Eclipse and a myriad of other editors, but not on how to write a highlighter/lexer for a self-written IDE.

    Greetings,

    Saulius
