New [CODE] tag with syntax Highlight

Postby admin » Fri Feb 05, 2016 4:13 am

We are introducing new CODE tag in our forum which will support VS COBOL II, ENTERPRISE COBOL, JCL, CICS and DB2 syntax. Just use the BBcode tag CODE and it will parse your input automatically. Please try and let me know your suggestions.

Here are some samples:

IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
 PROGRAM-ID. JOBINFO.
*testing
********comments
 DATA DIVISION.
 WORKING-STORAGE SECTION.
 01 JOB-NAME             PIC X(8).
 01 PROGRAM-NAME         PIC X(8).
 01 STEP-NAME            PIC X(8).

 LINKAGE SECTION.
 01 PSA.
    05 FILLER     PIC X(540).
    05 PSATOLD    POINTER.

 01 TCB.
    05 FILLER     PIC X(12).
    05 TCBTIO     POINTER.
    05 FILLER     PIC X(164).
    05 TCBJSCBB   POINTER.

 01 TIOT.
    05 TIOCNJOB   PIC X(8).
    05 TIOCSTPN   PIC X(8).

 01 JSCB.
    05 FILLER     PIC X(360).
    05 JSCBPGMN   PIC X(8).

 PROCEDURE DIVISION.
     SET ADDRESS OF PSA TO NULL

     SET ADDRESS OF TCB TO PSATOLD

     SET ADDRESS OF TIOT TO TCBTIO

     MOVE TIOCNJOB TO JOB-NAME
     MOVE TIOCSTPN TO STEP-NAME

     SET ADDRESS OF JSCB TO TCBJSCBB

     MOVE JSCBPGMN TO PROGRAM-NAME
     DISPLAY 'JOB NAME     = ' JOB-NAME
     DISPLAY 'STEP NAME    = ' STEP-NAME
     DISPLAY 'PROGRAM NAME = ' PROGRAM-NAME
     GOBACK.

unfortunately the color scheme used makes things pretty unreadable

it would be better to keep also the old green on black scheme with NO SYNTAX highlight

Now you can use <code=old>xxx<code> If you don't want to use the new syntax highlight option.

unfortunately the background of the CODE box is the same as the background of the rest of the page ...
and the box is not visible ( at least on Safari )

aaa
bbb
ccc
 


at least for code=old could You please make text and background green on black?

If you want to do highlighting, use the default colours used by ISPF!

please revert to the previous behaviour
ALL the code snippets are unreadable and it is very hard to provide answers

please help the people who on their own time and free of charge help the others
cheers
