What you need

Note:The VMT highlighter is still in development. If you find any thing wrong or have suggestion, contact Wolf.

How and what

ConTEXT is a beefed up notepad useful to programmers. One of the handy things is it's ability to color code functions and values, witch makes it a lot easier to read and write the file.

How to set it up

Install ConText. Save the the VMT highlighter in the highlighter folder, where you installed ConText. Now ConText will color the functions, values and operators in the QC. This helps a lot when bug fixing and trying to understanding the VMT format.
