I would like to develop a small text editor for VHDL / VerilogHDL with
features similar to the ones offered by MS Visual Studio for C /
C++. In particular, I would like to analyze the code in background in
order to offer code completion/indentation, syntax
checking/highlighting, pre-compilation, ... while the developper is
capturing the code.
Could someone help me in understanding how to program a scanner/parser
for such a task? I know the fundamentals of code scanning/parsing when
I have to translate a file into another but I'm pretty lost when I
think about a text widget whom content is continuously changing ...
