Description Sometimes I need to know if the current instruction sequence belongs to a loop or not. If it does, I'd like to know the loop boundaries. It would be nice to have the current loop highlighted. If the highlight changes as I navigate in the listing, it would be just great.

This is why I created this colorizer plugin. Implementing it turned out to be easier than I thought :) Pretty simple stuff but still useful.

There are no controls, no setup, nothing: the plugin is fully automatic. The listing looks like the screenshot shown below. I used only cross-references to detect loops. This allows the plugin to work with any processor. It detects the outermost loop (however I have a feeling that the innermost loop would be better)...
