TP Syntax Highlighting with Pygments

Filed under: FANUC TP Programming Open Source

You have noticed that the snippets of TP code in my previous posts now have pretty colors. I created a custom fork of GitHub’s pygments.rb that adds a lexer for FANUC TP. I’m going to maintain and improve this custom fork for a while until the lexer is a bit more complete, then I will see about submitting the patch to the official Pygments project.

Here’s an example:


  /PROG  EXAMPLE
  /ATTR
  OWNER     = ASCBIN;
  COMMENT   = "Example TP file";
  PROG_SIZE = 2651;
  CREATE    = DATE 14-01-02  TIME 10:12:44;
  MODIFIED  = DATE 14-01-02  TIME 10:12:44;
  FILE_NAME = ;
  VERSION   = 0;
  LINE_COUNT  = 21;
  MEMORY_SIZE = 3195;
  PROTECT   = READ_WRITE;
  TCD:  STACK_SIZE    = 0,
        TASK_PRIORITY = 50,
        TIME_SLICE    = 0,
        BUSY_LAMP_OFF = 0,
        ABORT_REQUEST = 0,
        PAUSE_REQUEST = 0;
  DEFAULT_GROUP = 1,*,*,*,*;
  CONTROL_CODE  = 00000000 00000000;
  /APPL

  LINE_TRACK;
    LINE_TRACK_SCHEDULE_NUMBER      : 1;
    LINE_TRACK_BOUNDARY_NUMBER      : 1;
    CONTINUE_TRACK_AT_PROG_END      : TRUE;

  /MN
     1:  ! Example comment ;
     2:   ;
     3:  LBL[1] ;
     4:  R[1:Some Register]=1 ;
     5:  DO[1:Some Output]=ON ;
     6:   ;
     7:  CALL MY_SUBROUTINE ;
     8:   ;
     9:  IF R[2:Another register]>=3,JMP LBL[999] ;
    10:   ;
    11:L PR[1:Some PR] max_speed CNT20 VOFFSET,VR[1] ACC R[100] ;
    12:   ;
    13:  UTOOL_NUM=5 ;
    14:  //PAYLOAD[2] ;
    15:   ;
    16:  F[1]=(OFF) ;
    17:   ;
    18:  WAIT    .20(sec) ;
    19:  JMP LBL[1] ;
    20:   ;
    21:  LBL[999] ;
  /POS
  /END
