Today’s Question:

Does anyone know of an editor (or program) that will match beginning and
ending parentheses in sql and highlight an ending paren that is missing?

It just so happens that I do know of such an amazing editor or program 🙂

I’ll let the pictures do the talking for me this afternoon:

Matched Parens

The good: Blue
The good: Matched paren pairs in blue

Missing Parens

The bad: Orphaned Paren highlighted in red
The bad: Orphaned Paren highlighted in red

Next question?

    I use Notepad++ which does what you want.

    I don’t know if it is a feature of Notepad++ or scintilla.
