DAT file syntax highlighter for VS Code
« on: October 11, 2017, 05:02:29 AM »
I started working on this the other day.  It's a syntax highlighter for DAT files.
Definitely consider this alpha. It does some basic error checking on float and integers and bools.

I plan to add more error checking on variable types and keys. I've probably missed a few things., but its a start.

Mostly I wanted this for myself and thought others might get some use out of it.

It looks promising.  :)

In recent years, I've used this syntax: https://forums.runicgames.com/discussion/55345/tldatlexer-for-notepad

But your syntax looks more complete.
