How do i get my terminal to highlight code when i'm writing some code, i remember it was already enabled in all the other distributions that i have used, i remember one time i had to edit some file to enable it and i had to get some code to make it highlight what programming language i was using, i can't really remember what file it was so if you can help me, i'd really appreciate it.
If you look in /usr/doc for nano, you'll find a nanorc example, with the options for syntax highlighting right at the bottom. Copy that to your home directory as .nanorc, and edit it.
ok i'll try that when i get home.
and for those that don't understand what i mean, what i'm trying to do is just like when in a IDE you get the programming language keywords highlighted in other color. that's what am trying to get.
anyway, i'll let you know if i get anything done.
