GNU Source-highlight 1.3 has been released.  It is available from and mirrors of that site (see
list of mirror sites at

GNU Source-highlight, given a source file, produces a document with
syntax highlighting. 
At the moment the following languages are handled:
- Java
- C/C++
- Prolog (NEW)
- Perl (NEW)

Changes in this version:

   * now there is only one program, namely source-highlight, that
accepts a
     command line option, --src-lang or -s, specifying the source
     (for the moment java, cpp and prolog).  Previous programs,
     and cpp2html are provided as shell scripts, just for compatibility,
     their use is not advised.
   * --out-format, -f, command line option added for specifying the
     format (for the moment only html is accepted).  Though only html is
     handled, this option is required.
   * a scanner for Prolog has been written by Martin Gebert
     <address@hidden>.  This scanner is still to be considered
     and actually it was written for Visual Prolog, so it should be
     against other Prolog dialects.
   * a scanner for Perl has been written by Alain Barbet
   * Correctly check whether it is possible to write to a file (notified
   * --tab option is correctly handled even for C/C++ files (bug fixed,
     notified by Martin)
   * Added option --line-number (-n) in order to print line numbers (as
     suggested by Ed Scott and Andre Charbonneau).
   * Man page added.
