Syntax Highlighter

Syntax highlighter or Code highlighter is a tool that helps in highlighting the different elements used in a piece of code like the keywords, comments, control-flow statements, variables, datatype, etc being used. These elements are displayed in different colors so that they can be easily recognized. This helps in easily recognizing the structure, syntax, and elements used in the code.

Highlighting some part of the text does not change its meaning; it is only for the benefit of the reader.

The highlighter used at Resurchify provides support for many languages like C, C++, Java, Python, etc. You just need to select your language from the drop-down list and the rest will be done. You can also select the option of Line number if you want the line number to be displayed in front of every line.

Benefits of using Syntax Highlighter or Syntax Beautifier

Often programmers come across large chunks of code, which are often time-consuming while understanding. In that case, comes the role of Syntax or code highlighter. Such a highlighter will help in improving the readability and make it easy for someone to grasp and work on the code.

It will also become easy for programmers to find any error. For example, the datatype of variables gets highlighted in a different color. In case you see a variable's data type is not highlighted, you can easily detect an error.

Braces can be easily matched for their opening and closing. Because in case a brace is left open, it gets highlighted in a different color.
