RE: [cdt-dev] Colorize code regions
If I am not wrong the way to put Markers in the Eclipse's resources is
using some Nature or some Builder.
The problem is that I am trying to communicate Eclipse with an external
application which provides the mark data. I mean the "test.cpp, lien
30-40, color blue" is provided externally in any moment using some kind
of IPC implementation.
With this scenario, I am not sure how to find out the way to include
these marks in the Eclipse environment. Any idea?
Thanks & Regards

Basically I create a resource marker on the file and set the starting offset and ending offset attributes and eclipse takes care of highlighting the region. However the user can change/override your choice of highlighting via Window->Preferences->General->Editors->Text Editors->Annotations.
