Description : A simple Ruby syntax highlighting library
This is a simple syntax highlighting library for Ruby. It is a naive syntax
analysis tool, meaning that it does not "understand" the syntaxes of the
languages it processes, but merely does some semi-intelligent pattern matching.
There are primarily two uses for the Syntax library:
# Convert text from a supported syntax to a supported highlight format (like HTML).
# Tokenize text in a supported syntax and process the tokens directly.
While there already exist other Ruby syntax highlighting libraries in Debian,
this one is a dependency of Cucumber, which I RFP'd (#565769) a while ago and
will shortly be converted to an ITP, if not by me then by a colleague.
