I'm a very visual person which means that colour coding makes things so much easier to read.
Some common highlighting is:
reserved keyworks: typedef, inline, double, etc. literals: 0x5bac, "Quotes", //Comments , #pragma preprocessor
The problem is that as I get to higher-level programming, I lose these visual cues, as literals are replaced with constants, quotes are replaced with const char* objects, non-basic types are used and the basic types that I do use are typedef'd into other aliases.
Are there any text editors that will highlight types such as enums, namespaces, classes, structs and typedef'd types? I've tried to find these options in visual studio but they don't appear to exist.
