If there are others like me using Vim to edit SPIN files - here is SPIN syntax definition. Unzip into the VIM directory - and you have your Spin files highlighted

Updated definition to preperly highlight identifiers that contain a reserved word (e.g. ByteCounter)

Oh yeah now were cooking. Vim and BSTC will do me fine.

For me, the past is not over yet.

Fantastic work! My favorite editor now understands the language of my favorite microcontroller - what could be better!


P.S. to get it to detect spin files automatically I also had to add the following lines to my _vimrc file:

augroup filetypedetect
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.spin setf spin
augroup END

Actually, the original post did had a ZIP file attached with both highlighter and file type detector, but when editing the post, I could not upload a ZIP file for some reason. Now I have updated the first post with ZIP file containing both files.

PS. Nice to see people using VIM for Propeller code editing. I've been a fan of VIM for a long time, and use it for any new language I learn
