Generic Syntax Highlighting with Regular Expressions in pure PHP

Generic Syntax Highlighting with Regular Expressions in pure PHP

Due to Google AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) , I have been looking for a way to effectively do Syntax Highlighting without Javascript in pure PHP.

I was about to write my own, when I found an older article from phoboslab. Thanks Dominic for saving me some time ;) Its not perfect, but close enough.

A simple Syntax Highlighting Class that does just that. The class was not working with PHP 5.4.x+, as it uses  preg_replace() with the /e modifier.

It will not cover all, but its better than nothing :) I will also add a section to my my AMP tweaks article to showcase the integration of Geshi.

Here an updated version using the preg_replace_callback() function.
