GNU Source-highlight

https://www.gnu.org/software/src-highlite/
Produce document with syntax highlighting from source file.

Source-highlight reads source language specifications dynamically, thus it can be easily extended (without recompiling the sources) for handling new languages. It also reads output format specifications dynamically, and thus it can be easily extended (without recompiling the sources) for handling new output formats. The syntax for these specifications is quite easy (take a look at the manual). Source-highlight is a command line program, and it can also be used as a CGI. Notice that Source-highlight can also be used as a formatter (i.e., without highlighting): you can, for instance, format a txt file in HTML (and it will take care of translating special characters, such as, <, >, &). Since version 2.2, source-highlight can also generate cross references; in order to do this it relies on Exuberant Ctags. These are the output formats already supported:

  • HTML
  • XHTML
  • LATEX
  • TEXINFO
  • ANSI color escape sequences (you can use this feature with less)
  • DocBook

These are the input languages (or input formats) already supported (in alphabetical order):

  • Ada
  • Autoconf files
  • C/C++
  • C#
  • Bib
  • Bison
  • Caml
