Version: (using KDE KDE 3.4.0)
Installed from: Debian stable Packages
It would be nice to see support for Erlang syntax highlighting.

About a year ago there was one on the kwrite mailing list, see 
We rejected the highlighting file as there were some bugs in code folding, but basically it works I guess. You can download the attachement from  and save it to ~/.kde/share/apps/katepart/syntax/.

Nice, that seems to work very well. I even don't see a bug if I test it with
ejabberd source files: http://svn.process-one.net/ejabberd/trunk/src/
So, IMO it already can be included in the main Kate codebase :-)
There *are* bugs, just read the mails - sigh

erlang syntax highlighter for kate
In my opinion -> should be added to the list of to highlight strings
I installed the attached (Bill Ross) highlighter and it works well for me
better at least than the emacs version ( highlights incorrectly on $' )
