Adding [Incr Tcl] support to Notepadd++

The Problem

Notepad++ does not support [Incr Tcl]: it does not apply syntax highlighting to *.itcl files.

The Solution

We can tell Notepad++ to treat *.itcl file as Tcl. This is not a perfect solution, but it is very quick to implement. Here are the steps:

  1. Edit the file langs.xml from the Notepad++ dir
  2. Search for ext=”tcl” and replace with ext=”tcl itcl”

That’s all! You can now enjoy syntax highlighting when editing you .itcl file. I am sure there are more throughout solutions, but this one is quick and easy–give it a try.
