Here's a mel syntax highlighter for Eclipse. There's another Eclipse mel highlighter available but it hasn't been updated in a few years. For those that are still using mel or dealing with legacy code, here's a solution for Eclipse.
Use this link in the "Install new software" page: Eclipse's Update Manager URL: https://colorer.sf.net/eclipsecolorer/
Once the plugin is installed, find the plugin directory and navigate to: .../plugins/net.sf.colorer_0.9.9/colorer/hrc/
Unzip the eclipseColorer_mel.zip into this folder which will replace 2 files there. Relaunch Eclipse. You can assign .mel file extensions to always open using the Colorer plugin as default. You can change color schemes and make your own. Those that find this useful and want to develop the mel.hrc file further (it's a language parser) and want to share what you've done, contact me to update these files. Btw, there's over 250 other syntax highlighting options with this plugin including RIB.
