Dear Makay,

As far as I know, there aren't and probably there won't be... cause those AMBER files you are referring to aren't part of any programming language, indeed I couldn't say it's a language itself, they are just input files with a given format or keywords... but hey! if it makes your life easier and pleasant then you can be the first in making such "custom text colouring modules"...

Asunto: [AMBER] Custom language module(s) for AMBER file types for common text editors?

Dear AMBER Users:

I’m looking for some custom language module(s) for the files used in the AMBER suite for use in Notepad++ <> and BBedit <>, and If I’m very lucky vi <> inside of bash.

Notepad++ and BBedit natively support colouring for common languages like HTML, bash scripts, markdown, etc… However, I have been unable to find a language module file(s) for the AMBER files <>. Having these custom color files would greatly increase the readability of AMBER files day-to-day. Currently they are just regular text, while my bash, perl and python scripts are very colourful and easy to read at a glance. BBedit supports “codeless language modules” <> Notepad++ supports “User defined Languages” <>

If such a module(s) exist for the text editors above can one point me in the right direction to download them? My google-fu has been unable to locate any such files. If modules do not exist where can I submit this as a ‘feature request’ for future development?
