Hi all,

I have created a new edit mode file for the editor JEdit (http://www.jedit.org) based on the file from Zed Shaw. The difference between 
his and my file is that mine can be used as a spell checker. It does not highlight all functions but provides syntax highlighting for the base 
package (keyword types 1 and 2) and 26 additional packages (boot, class, cluster, ctest, eda, foreign, grid, KernSmooth, lattice, lqs, 
MASS, methods, mgcv, modreg, mva, nlme, nls, nnet, rpart, spatial, splines, stepfun, survival, tcltk, tools, ts) (keyword type 3). The data 
files of these packages are highlighted, too.

For people who like an automatic spell check for keywords and functions while typing the new file provides an alternative to Zed's.
You can download both files (Zed's and mine) here: http://community.jedit.org/.

Happy coding,
