In an effort to be helpful in the area of snort rule generation (just the
mechanics, not the actual Ah Ha of signature analysis), I've concocted a
VIM syntax file, "hog.vim" . This file in conjunction with the "improved" vi,
highlights key elements of the configuration language. Currently, in a
vi window with a white background, text that appears in black is either:
punctuation; an unfinished key element; or not recognized as correct for
It is a work in progress, and I would appreciate any comments.
I happened upon VIM on my Debian Linux system. However, it appears that it
runs on many operating systems. Quoting from the vim web page:
AmigaOS, AtariMiNT, BeOS, DOS, MacOS,
OS/2, RiscOS, VMS, Windows (95/98/NT4/NT5/2000)
and, of course, on UNIX in a lot of flavours:
A/UX, AIX, BSDI, Convex, DYNIX/ptx, DG/UX, DEC Unix, FreeBSD,
HPUX, Irix, Linux [Debian, RedHat, Slackware, SuSE,...],
MacOSX, NetBSD, NEXTSTEP, OpenBSD, OSF, QNX, SCO, Sinix,
Solaris, SunOS, SUPER-UX, Ultrix, Unixware, Unisys.
You can find the "hog" syntax file here:
