Syntax highlighting XML files used to come with katepart, but that's

can't find the syntax XML files :-/
Where are they?
I think they are part of the KTextEditor Framework now, Kate and friends
Hm, it doesn't install any xml files.
The built-in syntax highlighting XML files are packed into a Qt
resource (qrc). This improves performance when loading them. I don't
remember if it's installed as a separate qrc file or if it's embedded
into the library, though.
Why do you need them? You can get them from the SyntaxHighlighting
framework source code, and you can install modified versions in the
user path René mentioned.
Ah, OK. No wonder I was unable to find them. Thanks for the link.
The reason I need them is because I need to modify tads3.xml and update
it due to changes in the language it defines the syntax for.
