To highlight lexical terms in various programming languages Visual Comparer uses such a concept as Parser. Starting with the version 1.0 lexical parsers are realized as external plug-in modules. Each module can contain a collection of parsers and has .prs extension.

  • How to install new parsers:
    • download the new appropriate parser plug-in;
    • put the new parser to the parsers directory - "Parsers";
    • reload Visual Comparer;
    • go to the Parsers property page on the Settings dialog (menu Tools);
    • find the newly installed parsers and setup other colors for tokens (if necessary);
    • switch to the Filters property page, associate the new parser with the existing filter or create a new file extensions filter if necessary and associate it with the new parser.

Note: Plug-in modules from UNICODE and ANSI versions Visual Comparer do not match each other! Be attentive while installing new modules.
