There are times where coding certain libraries becomes a horrifying exercise in visual pattern recognition.
Is there a way to highlight (or otherwise color) certain text matches?
Take the following before and after code for example (removing comments for brevity, and using images because of the limitations of this forum):
This is dramatically easier for me to parse through. Imagine pages upon pages upon pages of this.
I can enocde a macro of some kind to search for it on a keypress, but in that case, I would have to be careful in selecting the "ignore case" and "whole words" thing, because their prior states might not be known from prior searches (they're toggles).
There were a few requests for a sort of "custom syntax highlighter" in the past, but I cannot find that in any current revision.
Any solution come to mind? Or do I need to write my own plugin?
