Code Composer Studio - How do I get decent syntax highlighting?

Started by todd...@gmail.com March 24, 2005
I have a Spectrum Digital TMS320C6713 DSP Starter Kit (i.e. 6713 DSK)
with the included version of Code Composer Studio installed on my
computer.

The syntax highlighting in the "out-of-the-box" configuration leaves
something to be desired - it highlights comments in green and functions
in pink (after building) and everything else is in black.

So ... my question is - how do I activate some more full-featured
syntax highlighting?  At the very least I would like a different color
for C-language keywords and preprocessor directives (lets say, blue).
It would also be nice if variables were their own color.

Can anyone tell me how to do this?  Any advice is appreciated.  You can
either reply to this post or email me directly.

Ok, I solved my own problem and I thought I would let people know how I
did it.

The reason the syntax highlighting wasn't working out of the box like
it should have was that most of the keyword files (*.kwd) were messed
up as they were installed, specifically they had the wrong delimiter
between words.  It looks like it might have been a Unix versus Windows
newline/linefeed issue.  I replaced the messed up delimiter with a
windows "Enter" in all of the messed-up keyword files and now the
syntax highlighting is working just fine.

These keyword files are located in:
C:\ti\cc\bin\Editor\Keywords\Base

Thanks for the follow-up, Todd. I wish everyone were as considerate. Jerry -- Engineering is the art of making what you want from things you can get. �����������������������������������������������������������������������
