I've just released version 0.2 this program:

QSource-Highlight is a Qt4 front-end for GNU Source-Highlight,

I downloaded src-highlite and your Qt Wrapper class. But as far as I can see neither of them are platform independent. Especially src-highlite seems to rely on a unix system for the Makefile generation and the INSTALL file of your Wrapper class
seems to be designed for usage which unix only as well.

If both are really not usable for Windows the whole idea of both libaries is useless for me. I develop for windows and port to linux.
Not the other way!

Hi Matthias

actually they're both platform independent; it's true that they rely on a unix-like system for building, but in windows you have both cygwin and mingw/msys for that. Indeed there's a windows build of source-highlight that I did with mingw:

if you need a windows build for source-highlight-qt I can do that.

I'm using source-highlight and source-highlight-qt on windows myself for qsource-highlight.

By the way: source-highlight-qt is the library for performing syntax highlighting in Qt documents; qsource-highlight is a front-end for source-highlight which relies on source-highlight-qt :)

and for instance, qsource-highlight itself uses qmake for building.
