Print source code list in color...
« on: 2011-Mar-09 »
Hi!

I would like to propose an optional feature for the print section.

Currently, when sending a print source code, it displays black and white text. I tried to print a color printer (and also a PDF file) but does not show the font colors, etc ...

Would it be possible to add the option to print listings in colors as shown in the IDE?

Thanks in advance.

 ;)

Useless offtopic trivia time!

Want to know what's the most expensive liquid on planet Earth?
Oil? Blood?
No! Printer ink.

Carry on...

[But color printing to PDF could be useful for tutorials etc.]

I'm also old-school programmer but I stopped with paper when I stopped with RPG400 on form-paper :-) Did you try my code-coloring tool?


(Screenshot from some IBM manual, the manual we had at school filled a one meter broad shelf...)

Hello @Moru... Do you have a offline version of this tool?

TIA, ;)

It has now been converted for the forums so just paste into a forums post and preview :-)
I don't have an offline version since it's written in PHP.
