Codeless Language Modules

Codeless language modules make it much easier to extend BBEdit’s built-in syntax coloring and function navigation. The basic syntax and coloring rules for programming languages can be represented by a relatively simple text file, without requiring programming or advanced logic.

Terminal Integration

Invoke BBEdit from the command line and pass the results to a document. For example, the ps (process status) command can generate some extremely long lines. Here, we are telling ps to give complete details and to put the result into a new document and to scroll the window to the top of the document. (The document behind the Terminal window is a BBEdit document.)
