Whenever I open a *.log file with SciTE, I then click to change the language to "errorlist". I have searched to try to find how to configure SciTE to automatically associate this style with the extension, but have had no success. There's a lot of information about how to write your own lexer, but not much on how to use an existing one.

This is what I did to associate *.lib files to cpp lexer:

I added the lines

file.patterns.cplusplus=$(file.patterns.cplusplus);*.lib
lexer.$(file.patterns.cplusplus)=cpp

to the User properties file.

cpp in the second line refers to the file "cpp.properties". (And file.patterns.cplusplus is one of the patterns defined in that file.)

I dont know which file corresponds to the Errorlist language, you can look for it in the Menu:

Options -> Edit Properties
