Hi Andrea,

No, it does not exist. Feel free to write one, it would be quite useful!

Re: Command editor
I've used nedit for years with it's syntax highlighting and added my own file type definitions for CFX-4 and CFX-5 command files (.fc and .ccl). You're best off learning from the other definitions (like C++ and Fortran) and then creating syntax rules for keywords and commands based on how they appear in the file (i.e. commands are followed by a ':' an keywords are followed by an '='). You can copy the rules for text and numeric constants also from these other syntax rules.

nedit is available on the internet free for most unix workstations. There's a semi-port for Windows but you have to run an X emulator and I've found it's more trouble than it's worth.

I think the Windows software EditPadPro will do something similar, although you have to buy the commercial version. The free lite version doesn't do syntax highlighting.
