.mrc files -- web mime type - 12/03/05 03:07 AM

i am looking to set up something similar to what .phps files do, except i want to do this for .mrc files.. like colorize the code when viewing the file from my server. im not sure what this would consist of doing but im sure it can be done.

you;d need to find a program which has the ability to do custom syntax highlighting. Then you'd need to customise it yourself, and probably input every single mirc command and identifier into it. I think there is a custom config for a program called "Textpad" which has that but textpad is not free so i havn't tried it.

But frankly, if you can write mirc script you can read it just as easily without bothering with syntax highlighting. However i still wish the inbuilt editor had syntax hightighting, that'd be awesome, but thats been suggested a load of times so shouldn't be discussed in this thread.

[Edit] Found a couple of things on mircscripts.org:

you mean like viewing a .mrc file via a web browser but syntax highlighted?
I don't see why it couldn't be done in firefox/mozilla, but would involve creating an extension for it and i don't have the 1st clue how.

no, im talking about something server side, just like the .phps is server side.

Hello,
i and some other m8s implement a web server that runs server side mircscript pages.
Is that what you are looking for?
If so check this

For Apache servers, this consists of three steps.
  1. Enable mod_rewrite in httpd.conf and restart the server.
  2. Create a new text file in the root directory of your server, call it .htaccess, and put these lines in it:

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule \.mrc$ /highlight_mrc.php [E=FILE:%{REQUEST_FILENAME}]

  3. Get a PHP script that highlights mIRC syntax, place it in the root directory of your server and call it highlight_mrc.php. One (silly) example is here.

    As you can learn from the example, the variable $_SERVER['REDIRECT_FILE'] holds the path to the .mrc file.
(Tested on Apache 1.3)

I updated the file (highlight_mrc.txt) to color assignment (=) and comparison (==) operators too. You can add more options yourself by editing the highlight_mirc() function.

Keep in mind that I wrote the file merely as an example—it's by no means supposed to be an efficient and fully-functional syntax highlighter. If you want something better, consider asking the mirc.net staff to share their code with you.
