My degree is in Biology, but I learned how to program shortly after changing to Linux by poking into the source of the programs I use.

I mostly program in perl for bioinformatics (where I contribute to the BioPerl project) and Octave for image processing, but am capable of reading and hacking in C++, bash, python, and R.

For full disclosure, I am an Octave developer and maintainer of Octave's image package.

comment How to add a new language definition for syntax highlighting in Gedit?
1) I think it makes sense the way it. If you have a <context ref="">, then it's a reference you should not give it an ID. If for some reason you need to, then have a <context id=""> with an <include>. 2) there's a difference between context and style. If you are doing <context ref="" style="">, it assumes the first is a reference for another <context>, while the second is a reference to something defined on <styles>. A final suggestion would be tun run the check-language.sh script that is in the directory with the lang files.
