This directory contains files that provide support for using version 2.0 or later of the source-highlight package by Lorenzo Bettini with Logtalk source files. A detailed description on the source-highlight package is available from:


These support files are dual-licensed under the Apache License 2.0 and the source-highlight license.

In order to check if your source-highlight installation already includes support for Logtalk, use the following command:

% source-highlight --lang-list

If support for Logtalk is not included or if it is outdated, copy the file "logtalk.lang" to the folder:


where $prefix is the source-highlight installation directory (by default, /usr/local) and then edit, if necessary, the file:


and add the entries:

lgt = logtalk.lang
logtalk = logtalk.lang

Usage example for a "foo.lgt" Logtalk source file:

% source-highlight --tab=4 --out-format xhtml --input foo.lgt --output foo.html

Usually, Logtalk files are formatted using tabs (the recommended setting is a tab width equivalent to 4 spaces). You may want to use the "--tab=4" option to keep you source code formatting choices.

You may also use the "logtalk.lang" file with plain Prolog files by using the "--src-lang" option. For example:

% source-highlight --src-lang lgt --out-format xhtml --input foo.pl --output foo.html
