    • Syntax highlighting

      When coding and debugging rules in PALO it helps to be able to identify different syntax elements using colours as shown in the screen shot below

      By using the free ConTEXT text editor (which you can download here), and installing the highlighter file (which you can request using the form here), you can set the colouring options as you wish.

      You can then write and check your rules in the ConTEXT editor and then paste or load them to the PALO editor. All you need to do is either save the rules in a text file with a .palo extension or tell ConTEXT to use the PALO highlighting template.
