Bluefish language definition files

All syntax highlighting and autocompletion is defined in bluefish language definition files, saved in .bflang2 files. In the source code they can be found in data/bflang/

On Linux they are installed in /usr/share/bluefish/bflang/

If you store a bflang2 file in your bluefish settings directory ~/.bluefish/ it has higher priority than the system wide installed files. So if you are going to change a bflang2 file, just copy it into ~/.bluefish/

The format of the file

The file format is XML.

It starts with a root tag <bflang>:

<bflang name="Shell" version="2.0" > </bflang>
