Adding new language specific commands to scite

SciTE, the programmer's editor, is completely configurable using Lua. Commands (eg: syntax check, compile, make) can be configured based on the file types. Scite has one command "Syntax Check" for python by default (`Ctrl-``). Adding new commands is easy.

Adding a PEP8 check to Scite is easy.

Open up /usr/share/scite/ and add these two lines to the bottom of the file:*.py=Run PEP8
command.2.*.py=pep8 $(FilePath)

The 2 maps the command to Ctrl-2.

Note:Install pep8 commmand with pip or easy_install.
