highlight: Converting code for display

Next is highlight (not to be confused with highlighter) which changes source code to formatted text.

It’s not a code converter so much as a formatter, as I understand it. I doubt it’s going to change your old Fortran code to PET Basic. 🙄

But as you can see, it plucks through C and formats it neatly in HTML, for display on web pages and so forth.

highlight has a lot of other features I just couldn’t show right now. And the home page has a huge list of languages it can interpret and convert.

This is definitely one of those tools that I would have more use for if I did much coding. As it is though, it’s a curiosity, but not something I can really put to use.

You, on the other hand. … 🙂
