It is a miracle. What if this tool can run a program that make run our source file written in this editor?

Its early days but this looks worth trying. I've spent years looking for a good editor that runs on Windows. This might just be the favourite. Its lightweight, fast and doesn't need to be installed but it appears to have all the necessary features. I can't say anything about stability yet.

Great concept and tool!

A codeless lex and yacc built into a text editor! Terrific job. Hard to complain about a free tool, but on the other hand, hard to find much to complain about in the first place.

To many to list here. Better to download and try it.

Only cons...
No VS/C# development
Help is too basic and not detailed enough. Needs a tutorial.

On a scale of 1-10
-innovation = 10
-intuitiveness = 9
-user usability = 9
-documentation = 6
-features = 10
-extensibility = 4 (Pascal and no VS/C# support)

Rapidly installed and worked

EControl syntax really does what promises. I installed quickly into my C++ Builder 6 and replaced the "TMemo" component in very little time. It is full of features beyond my real needs but it's nice to have them with it. If you have used the new Delphi or Borland Developer Studio interface, it gives the same editing features (and much more). The only thing that I don't like is that it's rather complex to build a grammar yer own. For my task, which is to give syntax-highligh in script language of my own, I just copied and modified the existing C++ grammar because, luckly, my language is similar to C.

I also have found two small bugs. One is that line numbers can't be aligned right despite choosing Align = alRight. The other bug is that you can't type "{" and "}" by ALT+0123 and ALT+0125 in the editor; I do that because in our keyboards we don't have such keys, so we are used to do the ALT+n combination.

Apart from that, it's a very quality component that I truly recommend. If you need syntax highlighting in Borland written programs, EContrl Syntax is the answer.
