Hello !
I'm willing to write a little text editor in java ...
My Editor should be able to do a Syntax Highlight for PHP code( php is a web
scripting language having HTML and C language syntax...)
My Editor should also be able to check for errors (for instance , when a "{"
is typed , the code should be highlighted in red till a "}" is typed ... the
same so "(" , ")" , ";"an so on ...)

The trouble is that I don't really know where to start from ....
So , How can I do the syntax Highlight stuff in Java ?
and How to define the PHP language for the editor and how to check for
errors ?

I'm looking for links to tutorials , sample codes or advices...

Thanks in advance ....

Have a nice day !

go to the library and see how people have solved this problem in the
past. -John]
