We have been using the Scintilla editor in Take Command and TCC for several years (for the IDE / batch debugger edit window, the Take Command Command Input edit window, and various popup windows).

The Scintilla source code includes lexers for a number of languages, to support things like syntax coloring, code folding and tooltips. I wrote a lexer for the TCC scripting language for the Take Command IDE several years ago, but it was built in to the IDE and not available in source code for others to incorporate into their Scintilla projects.

I have now posted the source code for the TCC Scintilla lexer to the Scintilla SourceForge project. It's available for anyone to use (plugins anyone?) in any application that is using Scintilla. (The lexer will also support the older 4NT and 4DOS batch files.)

If you have any comments, suggestions, or bug reports, let me know.
