NAME

       Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate::Template - a template for syntax highlighting plugins

DESCRIPTION

       Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate::Template is a framework to assist authors of plugin
       modules.  All methods to provide highlighting to the Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate
       module are there, Just no syntax definitions and callbacks. An instance of
       Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate::Template should never be created, it's meant to be sub
       classed only.

METHODS

       attributes(?$attributesref?);
           Sets and returns a reference to the attributes hash.

       basecontext(?$context?);
           Sets and returns the basecontext instance variable. This is the context that is used
           when highlighting starts.

       captured($cap);
           Puts $cap in the first element of the stack, the current context. Used when the
           context is dynamic.

       capturedGet($num);
           Returns the $num'th element that was captured in the current context.

       capturedParse($string, $mode);
           If $mode is specified, $string should only be one character long and numeric.
           capturedParse will return the Nth captured element of the current context.

           If $mode is not specified, all occurrences of %[1-9] will be replaced by the captured
           element of the current context.

       column
           returns the column position in the line that is currently highlighted.

       contextdata(\%data);
           Sets and returns a reference to the contextdata hash.

       contextInfo($context, $item);
           returns the value of several context options. $item can be callback, attribute,
           lineending, linebeginning, fallthrough.

       contextParse($plugin, $context);
           Called by the plugins after a test succeeds. if $context has following values:

            #pop       returns to the previous context, removes to top item in the stack. Can
                       also be specified as #pop#pop etc.
            #stay      does nothing.
            ##....     Switches to the plugin specified in .... and assumes it's basecontext.
            ....       Swtiches to the context specified in ....

       deliminators(?$delim?);
           Sets and returns a string that is a regular expression for detecting deliminators.

       engine
           Returns a reference to the Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate module that created this
           plugin.

       firstnonspace($string);
           returns true if the current line did not contain a non-spatial character so far and
           the first character in $string is also a spatial character.

       formatTable
           sets and returns the instance variable format_table. See also the option format_table

       highlight($text);
           highlights $text. It does so by selecting the proper callback from the commands hash
           and invoke it. It will do so until $text has been reduced to an empty string. returns
           a paired list of snippets of text and the attribute with which they should be
           highlighted.

       highlightText($text);
           highlights $text and reformats it using the format_table and substitutions

       includePlugin($language, \$text);
           Includes the plugin for $language in the highlighting.

       includeRules($language, \$text);
           Includes the plugin for $language in the highlighting.

       keywordscase
           Sets and returns the keywordscase instance variable.

       lastchar
           return the last character that was processed.

       lastcharDeliminator
           returns true if the last character processed was a deliminator.

       linesegment
           returns the string of text in the current line that has been processed so far,

       linestart
           returns true if processing is currently at the beginning of a line.

       listAdd('listname', $item1, $item2 ...);
           Adds a list to the 'lists' hash.

       lists(?\%lists?);
           sets and returns the instance variable 'lists'.

       out(?\@highlightedlist?);
           sets and returns the instance variable 'out'.

       parseResult(\$text, $match, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
           Called by every one of the test methods below. If the test matches, it will do a
           couple of subtests.  If $column is a defined numerical value it will test if the
           process is at the requested column.  If $firnonspace is true, it will test this also.
           Ig it is not a look ahead and all tests are passed, $match is then parsed and removed
           from $$text.

       pluginGet($language);
           Returns a reference to a plugin object for the specified language. Creating an
           instance if needed.

       reset
           Resets the highlight engine to a fresh state, does not change the syntx.

       snippet
           Contains the current snippet of text that will have one attribute. The moment the
           attribute changes it will be parsed.

       snippetAppend($string)
           appends $string to the current snippet.

       snippetAttribute($attribute)
           Sets and returns the used attribute.

       snippetForce
           Forces the current snippet to be parsed.

       snippetParse($text, ?$attribute?)
           If attribute is defined and differs from the current attribute it does a snippetForce
           and sets the current attribute to $attribute. Then it does a snippetAppend of $text

       stack
           sets and returns the instance variable 'stack', a reference to an array

       stackPull
           retrieves the element that is on top of the stack, decrements stacksize by 1.

       stackPush($tagname);
           puts $tagname on top of the stack, increments stacksize by 1

       stackTop
           Retrieves the element that is on top of the stack.

       stateCompare(\@state)
           Compares two lists, \@state and the stack. returns true if they match.

       stateGet
           Returns a list containing the entire stack.

       stateSet(@list)
           Accepts @list as the current stack.

       substitutions
           sets and returns a reference to the substitutions hash.

       The methods below all return a boolean value.

       testAnyChar(\$text, $string, $insensitive, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context,
       $attribute);
       testDetectChar(\$text, $char, $insensitive, $dynamic, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace,
       $context, $attribute);

       $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testDetectIdentifier(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testDetectSpaces(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testFloat(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testHlCChar(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testHlCHex(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testHlCOct(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testHlCStringChar(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testInt(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testKeyword(\$text, $list, $insensitive, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context,
       $attribute);
       testLineContinue(\$text, $lookahaed, $column, $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
       testRangeDetect(\$text,  $char1, $char2, $insensitive, $lookahaed, $column,
       $firstnonspace, $context, $attribute);
