Source-highlight depends on the Boost regex library
( so you need to install this library (boost
libraries are usually shipped with most distributions).

Source-highlight can also generate cross references; in order to do this
it relies on GNU Ctags,

Version 2.5

   * fixed for php files
   * fixed url.lang
   * --debug-langdef can be interactive
   * nohilite.lang that does not perform any highlighting, but
     only formats the input file into the output format (dealing
     with output format special characters)
   * default.lang to which source-highlight falls back when no
     input language is specified or available
   * infer script languages
   * --header and --footer options do not require --doc option
   * --statistics print elapsed time
   * highlight cls, dtx and sty LaTeX files
