   RE: [xml-dev] Source Code Markup Language?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Don't know if this has something to do with what you want:

I copied the folowing from their site:
YAXX: YAcc eXtension to XML

The YAXX tool is an XML extension to YACC, a well-known compiler-compiler.
Given a program and its YACC grammar, YAXX outputs the internal parse tree
of the program as an XML document. The generated XML conforms to the DTD
that is also generated from the YACC grammar and it can be transformed back
to a legal program through XSLT.

I've often considered doing the same thing, but have always ended up using
<code>...</code> for all cases.

Will variable names and operators need to be highlighted differently when
they're mentioned within a paragraph?

Will you ever want to do things like search documents for instances of the
variable "foo" (and, for example, not the operator "foo")?
