Has someone created a User defined language in order to get some syntax highlighting for .inp files (eQuest/DOE2) when working with notepad++?

I've created this user-defined language that you'll find here.

Either copy the code inside and add it to your userDefineLang.xml (%appdata%/notepad++).

Or in notepad++, click on Language > Define your language > Import.

It should be already linked to "inp" extension (you shouldn't put ".inp" in the "ext" box).

Should this answer be accepted so the thread can be marked as resolved? (I'm biased, so asking for a third party ruling here. @Neal Kruis )
