Algorithm Specification

We allow you to customize highlight algorithm using a string similar to this:

- 0 1 1 2 0.4

Note that all numbers and characters are separated by a space. Here is what this string means:

- 0 1 1 2 0.4
^

The first character can be either - or +. If it is -, we don’t highlight common english words (for example ‘a’, ‘and’, etc.) if it is ‘+’ we highlight all words.

- 0 1 1 2 0.4
  ^

This specifies the number of highlighted characters for words with length 1. For example ‘a’ and ‘I’. Here we have specified that we don’t want to highlight these characters.

- 0 1 1 2 0.4
    ^

This specifies the number of highlighted characters for words with length 2. For example ‘an’ and ‘or’. Here we have specified that we highlight the first character of these words.

- 0 1 1 2 0.4
      ^

Highlight the first character of 3 letter words.

- 0 1 1 2 0.4
        ^

Highlight the first two character of 4 letter words.

- 0 1 1 2 0.4
           ^

Unlike the previews entries, the last entry is a fractional value between 0 and 1 which specified which fraction of words that are not specified by previous rules must be highlighted. For example, here we highlight the first 40% characters of words with 5 or more characters.
