GeSHi - Generic Syntax Highlighter


Author: Benny Baumann, Nigel McNie Email: [email protected], [email protected] GeSHi Website:

GeSHi is a generic syntax highlighter, written in PHP. You simply input the source code you wish to highlight with the language you wish to use, and the output will be a file syntax highlighted to XHTML standards.


For more information on how to use GeSHi, please consult the documentation. If you got this readme from a GeSHi package, then the documentation is available in the docs directory. Documentation is also available online.

If you think you've found a bug in GeSHi, contact me with a bug report at [email protected], submit to the bug tracker at GitHub. Be aware that minor highlighting errors may well just be incorrect language files, but if you do find something major please contact me.

And if you're using GeSHi as a plugin/mod for some other software, please tell me about it! It's worth a link to you, and I can give you specialist help if you need it.


GeSHi is free software, released under the GNU GPL. Please see the LICENSE file for more information. If you do modify this program, please tell me about it! Perhaps you've made a good improvement that I can learn from :)
