Eric Knibbe has published a BBEdit Codeless Language Module forLasso 9.

This codeless language module is designed to work with both the LassoScript<?lassoscript?> and square-bracket [] syntaxes for Lasso Professional8.5.x and later.

Filenames must end with .lasso, .las, or .inc. You can modify thefile LassoScript.plist to include other file suffixes.

The BBLMKeywordList is current as of Lasso Professional 8.6.3. To updatethe BBLMKeywordList, edit LassoScript.plist as specified in the messageon LassoTalk Subject: List of all LDML tags and keywords.

I modified the SQL statement from the above message as shown below.

Step 1: Export tags, parameter names and parameter values¶

Begin by going to the LassoAdmin database browser, under the SQL tab:http://localhost/DatabaseBrowser.0.LassoApp?tab1=sql

Use the following search parameters.

Click SQL Statement heading.

SQL Statement parameters

Click Export heading.

Line EndingsUNIX/Mac OS X

Click Options heading.

Options parameters
Show FieldsAll Fields
Max RecordsAll Records
Max Field LinesAll Lines
Submit on ReturnNo

Enter the following in the SQL Statement field.

code-block:: sql

SELECT tag_name FROM tagsUNIONSELECT DISTINCT param_name FROM parameters WHERE param_name LIKE '-%'UNIONSELECT DISTINCT param_value FROM parameters WHERE param_value LIKE '-%'ORDER BY tag_name;

Click Issue SQL Statement button.

Click Export Results button.

Step 2: Clean up export in BBEdit¶

Manually remove any symbols and other Types from the records (! NotLogical ... -> Member).

After you have done that, you can either use the following process manually,or you can use the AppleScript LDML_Prep.scpt which is included in therepository. LDML_Prep.scpt executes the following steps in order.

Strip ' ... ' (spaces before and after) for matching container tags, thena stray '...' (no spaces), then account for parameter values that arecomma-separated, then strip square brackets, then format for the plist.

' ... 'r
', 'r
(.*)rtt<string>1</string>r (use grep)

Step 3: Modify plist¶

Paste results into my plist at the top of the BBLMKeywordList, select thearray of keywords, and use BBEdit's Text > Process Duplicate Lines command toremove duplicate keywords.

Complete information on writing Codeless Language Modules can be found in theBBEdit User Manual.

  7. In BBEdit, select BBEdit > Preferences > Languages > Suffix Mappings. Mapthe file suffixes that you want to have lasso syntax highlighting to theappropriate language module. You might need to Add... or Change...file suffixes. I recommend mapping .lasso, .las, and .inc. Foreach suffix, set the name of the suffix, set the language to LassoScript, and select the radio button for Source File.
  8. Under the Scripts menu (the funny scroll icon shaped like an S),select Set Language to > LDML.
  9. You can set keyboard shortcuts for these scripts to easily switch languagemodes. Select Window > Palettes > Scripts. Expand Set Language to.Select HTML. Click Set Key.... I use ^H (CTRL-H) for HTML, and^L for LDML.
  10. Create a new file, name it test.lasso, set the language to LDML, andsyntax coloring should work.
