      I am leaving for the evening but will look at the code in tonight. I did not intend on anyone having to write the indentation themselves, I was simply looking for guidance :-)...

      As for the rule... The rule for Josl is that a new word begins when a non-space/non-comment character is in column 1. Josl has very minimal syntax requirements by design. The words (function in other languages) continues until the next one begins. So...

      hello-world 10 times
      ........"Hello" println

      goodbye-word 10 times
      ........"Hello" println

      main hello-world

      That defines 3 words, the "main" word being the entry point. In Josl, the only separator is a space. There is a special syntax for strings, "... content ... ". Other than that, anything is valid in a word name, for example:

      [10-{times},do-a()] 10 times a next

      defines a new word that is perfectly valid and would be called as "[10-{times},do-a()]". I understand this complicates the indentation in any editor. I am thankful that you wrote some code but did not mean to place that burden on you.

      Thanks, will get back with you later this evening.

      Actually this line works better for keeping the first 0 column line indent. You
      must start in the margin but once it is there then it sticks irrespective of
      the indent in the previous block (assuming it is not more than 5 - could put 9

      indent .hilight.josl u "^\\w+" -5t t

      Noted for the following:

      is-person? if
      "Hello, Person!" println

      Then I think the following is more correct because the 'if' causes another
      indent and the 'end' is indented in the correct place.

      is-person? if
      "Hello, Person!" println

      except for the new words...

      "Hello" println
