There is support. What are you postfixing your C++ files with? I believe
xwpe ships with .C as the extension. I use .cc so I had to change this.
Take a look at /usr/{local,}/lib/xwpe/syntax_def. You can put a copy of
this into your ~/.xwpe directory and change it to your liking, aka adding
new keywords, changing file extentions, etc. Make sure that the number
above the keywords matches up with the number of keywords. (I hit this
when I added iostream classes to my syntax.. I had to increment that
I believe also you can change the extension from the Options menu, however
I do not know if it changes the syntax_def file.
BTW you can get lots of other syntaxes from the xwpe website.. like HTML
and perl.
