Coding’s not just black and white, it’s a fine art!
Color co-ordinated code - more than just a fashion statement!

Add a splash of color to your FoxPro desktop. With the Xi L i g h t s editor enhancement, seamlessly upgrading your black and white FoxPro editor into glorious Technicolor. Color assignments to FoxPro code keywords, program flow constructs, comments, string constants, numeric constants, system variables and more. Fully color customizable.

Even see the Command and Trace windows in full blown color. XiLights still operates after the FLL library is unloaded (VFP only), ensuring persistence of functionality as you run through code and work with other libraries. 

Makes development and debugging so much easier on the eye, and useful for training purposes too.

XiLights supports FoxPro/Win (non NT platforms) or Visual FoxPro 3.0 under Win95,Win98,WinME,WinNT,Win2K and WinXP.
