An automatic syntax highlighter for EMACS and VI. I'm taking a compiler construction course at CU this semester and a friend and I have chosen to write a compiler that produces syntax highlighters for two popular editors based on the abstract syntax specification of the language. We're using Eli (see Eli homepage). We spent last night wrangling with the AST, communally editing the AST spec using vim on screen. Nothing earth-shattering here, but it's what I'm working on.
