script type
This is the syntax highlighting script for Macromedia Directors Lingo scripting language.

I updated the file to the current version (MX2004). There might be some things missing. Feel free to add a new version here or contact me, if you want/did enhancements.

This is an enhanced version of the lingo syntax file by Robert Robbins. I uploaded it as new script, because I stripped off the color definitions and entered new types.

I now also created an color scheme, so you get the original Director syntax colors (vimscript #1012). This way you can convert them to HTML and put them on your website. Read the description at the color scheme for details.

install details
Put the lingo.vim file in ~/.vim/syntax/ folder.
You may want  to add a line in your ~/.vimrc or in ~/.vim/filetype.vim to load this syntax file for all *.ls files (this way the automatic highlighting will also work when starting the external editor from within Director).
