While working with SoftwareSerial.h I noted that it wasn’t getting complete syntax highlighting. I dug into this and found that the keywords.txt file hadn’t been updated since NewSoftSerial was incorporated. I have 3 versions of the IDE installed on my machine, v1.0.3, v1.0.4ERW(my primary), and v1.5.2. All three versions have the old keywords.txt file from NewSoftSerial. (Well, not any more… ;))
I modified the file and it now works, see the new keywords.txt file (attached) for submission into the project. (If there is a better way through git, please advise. Note, I’ve never used git before so consider me a rank newb in any advice.)
It does seem to be a known issue by at least the community (see the reply#1 in this forum post). Hopefully this post will catch the eye of the project maintainers and get fixed for any and all future releases.
