Yea, got it now. Having problems changing my bash terminal in OSX to get colour, but I'll play a little more and find the right setting.

I actually read the README, INSTALL, README.CVS, the documentation on the website, went through the existing mailing lists and couldn't find anything. In fact it took me some time to even find the faq included with the source after you mentioned it because it's called faq.html and kinda gets lost when all the other documentation, as you would expect, is plain text and has it's file name in all caps.

Thanks all.

Right, I meant --enable-color or whatever it's called.

All this is in the faq, which you really should read.

I already did, like my second sentence said. :)

I didn't do it that way originally, but I did make clean and then started again. It must be reading the .nanorc as well, otherwise it wouldn't be giving me errors when reading it.

You probably need to compile with --enable-nanorc. Check the faq that comes with the source.

I'm using OS X as well.

I grabbed the latest version from CVS and after some messing around getting each of the requirements via fink, got the whole thing compiled on OS X. I had done configure with --enable-nanorc and everything went ok, and I've created myself a nice little .nanorc file as follows...

set autoindent
set const
set nowrap
set smooth
set tabsize 4

syntax "perl" ".*\.pl$" ".*\.pm$"
color green "if" "while"

But then when I try and open up any file, a .pl or otherwise, I get this...

command syntax not understood
command color not understood

Error in /Users/richard/.nanorc on line 8: Errors found in .nanorc file
Press return to continue starting nano

So where am I going wrong?
