is this language list at all extendable? instructions would be nice on how to add a language.

I'm using it on Blogger. I've put the scripts on another site and I refer to them. The code works fine except for that introduces break lines tag <br> instead of putting the code on multiple line,it puts the code on one line and it's awful. What's the problem? thanks. Chris.

I'd love to see perl support

php doesnt seem to work for me

c-sharp works fine, but using the class sql or Sql does not do anything. Is SQL working?

No ActionScript? supported :(

Comment by, Sep 20, 2007

If you're adding languages, add my vote for Perl support. I'd love to see pf syntax too, but that's probably less common and less likely to happen.

(There is a spelling mistake of aliaCes instead of aliaSes in the maintext below the table).

For those hankering after Perl support, here's my first attempt of a language file:

Has anyone worked on a Lua language file?

Comment by, Nov 14, 2007

If you want to get one of the languages other than C-Sharp or XML, you need to include the proper file. For example, if you want PHP, do the following:

<script language="javascript" src="js/shBrushPhp.js"></script>

There is a file for each supported language so you will need to figure out which one you want to include for your language.

Respect! Script is cool! It was not pleasant, that sometimes, lines block each other. Excuse, for my bad English = (

Any plan to speed it up a bit

Comment by, Apr 16, 2008

I second the request for Actionscript 3 support.

Comment by robby.oconnor, Apr 17, 2008

groovy support please? perhaps scala?

Comment by, Apr 22, 2008

Pretty slick,

Definitely has to have perl and diff support before its ready for prime time.

Would be the only choice IMO if it had those

And div support instead of pre, pre tags are pretty lame (the need to encode the < and > manually is pretty sucky too) and "all" that'd need done is to HTML encode certain entities and safe-fy the white space, like does.

Anyone considering doing something for PowerShell? ?

I am having some real trouble getting it to work with PHP is anyone else? and have they found a solution, it seems to work with every other language. Why not php?

<pre name="code" class="php"> <?php echo "HELP!"; ?> </pre>

Comment by, Jun 17, 2008

I would love to see objective-c support.

Comment by, Jun 26, 2008

Well, i am not sure if i did anything wrong, but i am having problems when i post lists type in Java, like List<Element>. Is that correct, the syntax highlighter does not support it?

Comment by, Jun 26, 2008

There are other options if you're language is not supported here. If you use emacs , there is an extention to htmlize your code. It should work with and language that has a mode for emacs:

This allows you to generate you're html up-front and paste it in.

Comment by, Jul 18, 2008

It would be good if Whitespace could be added to the list

Comment by, Jul 19, 2008


<br /> are added automatically in Blogger because, by default, it will add them for you.

Set the "Convert line breaks" under Settings -> Formatting to "No".

Comment by, Jul 23, 2008

Um, would you like to add the support for Fortran (what!).

I'm serious. I use programming techniques mainly to solve scientific problems, such as to find the numerical solution for a bizarre equation. Since then, I don't give much attention to OOP, yet. I use Fortran because of it's ability to manipulate external data file directly and generate the output as formatted matrix array.

So, anyone, is there someone have support for Fortran? Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

p.s. Sorry for the hyperbolic language .. :)

Comment by, Aug 3, 2008

Please add AS2 and AS3... I beg you...

I'd like to see some D support, in wouldn't be difficult now that you have c++ and Java in the list, and it would be nice :D

Comment by, Aug 22, 2008

actionscript?? there are so many blogs out there needing that. bit of a mistery why it is not included!

Comment by, Aug 27, 2008
