Could someone please explain how to create a syntax highlight for a language?

I want to add inform ( highlighting to
kwrite / kdevelop. There is already a vim highlighting file to base this on.

Adding inform support otherwise to kdevelop should be simple - its largely C
like, has a linux cli compiler and a set of std libs, use of which seems
to only require them to be in the current dir.

Of minor interest, but cool none the less. Inform is used to write interactive
fiction (text adventures) btw, to a cross platform interpreted virtual machine.
Same as the old infocom games, i.e. Zork.
