Perl syntax highlighting

CodeLobster IDE supports Perl syntax highlighting in the Editor to make it easier to read the semantics of the structured content by displaying each type of code in different colors and fonts.

This feature helps you to check code for errors, as it highlights mismatched enclosing characters with a different color.


To change the color scheme or customize the colors or styles used for the Perl syntax highlighting, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Preferences dialog box (Tools | Preferences).

  2. Go to Editor | Colors

  3. In the Show settings for: component select Perl item and customize the colors or styles using the selectors to the right of the pane.
