The Formatting Sampler shows how to make formatted and color matched OUTPUT, not formatted and color matched INPUT. All your current compilers: Borland C++, MS Visual C++, Fortran PowerStation, Visual Basic etc. include built in ways to make the code more readable as it is being entered. In essence, it is built in to their "front end". Does anyone out there know of a way of transforming the front end so that the INPUT code is more readable? -- Remove the _nospam_ in the return address to respond.
