Matthew (or anybody),

I want to piggyback my question onto this thread, as I suspect you'll 
know the answer.  If I create a new lexer for Scintilla, and then 
compile Scintilla, what must I do to get that new lexer (and new 
Scintilla) to work with Geany?

I tried to look into this a little bit once (at the time as almost a 
total newbie to C/C++) (about 18 months ago).  I vaguely recall that 
Geany needs something other (or in addition to) the <lexer>.properties 
file which SciTE needs to make use of a new lexer.  (As well, Scintilla 
and SciTE need some changes to various files other than the new lexer 
file to make a lexer take effect.)

Is there something about the requirements or procedure to get a new 
lexer / new Scintilla to work with Geany?
