I've just released a new version of Source-Highlight-IDE, an IDE for GNU Source-highlight (given a source file, produces a document with syntax highlighting).

Sourcehighlightide home page is

This new version is a complete rewriting using Qt4 (instead of KDE3) and it is based on Source-Highlight-Qt (which I've already blogged about) additional library,, which provides highlighting in Qt relying on GNU Source-Highlight.

Sourcehighlightide is useful when you have to develop a new language definition file for source-highlight. A language definition file makes use of regular expressions, and if they become complex it might be hard to understand how they are matched. Source-highlight already provides some mechanisms for debugging a language definition file; Sourcehighlightide provides a graphical interface to debug a language definition file: it will show which regular expression is matched during the formatting of the input file, and you can process the input file step by step (i.e., an expression at time), and you can also see the output while it is produced.
