Description

MC's internal syntax highlighting engine has many serious limitations like it's unable to highlight embedded quotations, it breaks on new lines, etc. etc. etc.

Colorer's can be licensed under GPL 2.0, LGPL 2.1 so it's fully compatible with MC's own license.

Colorer can be used as an external library, it also has a C language API.
