Is there a (scintilla) lexer for reStructuredText? With a quick look at
lexer names, I didn't see one.
With that same quick look, I came across the lexer LexTxt2tags.cxx and
looked at that a little--it looks like some of the stuff there is (or
could be easily adaptable for my lexer for Foswiki / TWiki. What is
that lexer for--is there a markup language named Txt2tags?
Oh, ok, I googled, yes there is, and I guess I'll spend a little time (a
few minutes) looking at that. (For Lex: it will save me from thinking
about lexing UTF-8, recursive descent parsers, switch / case
statements, and if / else chains ;-)

Actually, it was also in the 1950s. Or, at least, the first
specification was completed in December, 1959, and it is still used, a
lot--there is a lot of legacy code out there. But not (used) by
And, just for the record, no, I'm not that old. I'm actually the same
age as Jack Benny. (Should I explain the joke / humor? Jack Benny was
a comedian who, whenever he was asked his age, claimed to be 29.)
