## Tcl

Thanks for the offer to help with the Tcl formatting. I was really just looking to go back to what we had before as that mostly was working well. ;–)

The Tcl language is a tricky one to do perfectly correctly (I wrote a syntax highlighter for emacs's tcl-mode many years ago, so I know what I'm talking about) so typically it's easier to use an approximation and GeSHi isn't far off what's needed (apart from a few updates to the list of standard commands, which should be trivial anyway and doesn't need to be hurried). No time to go into great depth about it today though; I have a snowstorm to beat home… –Donal Fellows 13:34, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Well, there was an erronous regexp in the comment section that caused a bit of trouble. I disabled it for now.
Well, I'm also working together with someone on the J language file that looks totally illogical to me ... Tcl at least presents a tiny bit of logic.
I'll have some more time to work on language files soon. --BenBE 23:06, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

## VBScript

Regarding syntax highlighting for vbscript, using the vb or vb.net definitions would be quite adequate to start with. @Axtens

Schuld do. Althoug VBS has some strange changes in regards to VB and VB.net. VB should be the better base. --BenBE 21:19, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

## Language file

Thank you for your message on my file [1]. I fixed the file's issues: the two notices, the two errors, and the first warning all needed to be repaired. The last three warnings are correct as-is: there is a default that shares a name with a function and so forth. (If it's required that there be no overlap the duplicates in groups 2 and 3 could go, but they really should stay if possible.)

I haven't yet figured out how to handle the escapes but will look at the PHP file and see if that helps.

I don't see how to upload a file to SourceForge without opening a new issue, so for now I'll leave it here.
