Project: SWL Brace Highlighting
Version: 0.52
Author: Gillmer J. Derge,

DESCRIPTION

Whenever the carat is immediately preceded by a parenthesis (or brace
or bracket), this tool places a highlight on the matching element. The
highlighting can be controlled separately for each type of brace via
the Editor properties tab under Editor Options.... The "Highlight
text enclosed by ..." properties enable highlighting of the text that
occurs between the elements.

"Delay highlights" only adds a highlight if the caret remains in the same location for a fixed delay period (currently 800ms). This potentially improves performance.

"Expire highlights" automatically removes the highlights after a fixed
delay period (currently 800ms). This makes the tool function more
similarly to emacs.

"'Fix' brace matching actions" alters the built-in JBuilder actions
that move to the brace matching the one to the right of the caret. If
the fix is enabled, which is the default, then the actions are
modified to use the brace to the left of the caret.

The color of the highlight can be configured in the Color properties
tab by changing the background color of the "Brace highlight"
style. Note that only the background color setting of that style is
actually used.

The name of the tool refers to the Scheme Widget Library (SWL), a part
of Chez Scheme. Although I'm sure SWL did not "invent" the concept of
highlighting matching parentheses, that is where I first encountered
and fell in love with this particular visual style of displaying the
matches.

See the included file SwlBrace.html for installation, troubleshooting,
and detailed version information.
