Syntax highlighting for custom filetype in geany with keywords containing uppercase, lowercase, and underscore


I would like to apply the syntax highlighting for the program called "Phosim" and I generally save Phosim program files (instanceCatalogs) with file extension .cat.
Now I like to apply the syntax highlight for all the files with extension .cat.
So far I have done this:
First I created filetype extension configuration file: ~/.config/geany/filetype_extensions.conf
The contents of this looks like this:
[Extensions]
Gnuplot=*.gp;*.gnu;*.plt;
Galfit=*.gal;
Phosim=*.cat;
[Groups]
Script=Gnuplot;Galfit;Phosim;
Here, I am trying to apply custom highlight to programs Gnuplot, Galfit, and Phosim. For Gnuplot and Galfit it works fine. But for Phosim I got some problems.
Then I created file definition configuration file: ~/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.Phosim.conf
The contents of which looks like this:
# Author : Bhishan Poudel
# Date : May 24, 2016
# Version : 1.0
[styling]
# Edit these in the colorscheme .conf file instead
default=default
comment=comment_line
function=keyword_1
variable=string_1,bold
label=label
userdefined=string_2
number=number_2
[keywords]
# all items must be in one line separated by space
variables=object Unrefracted_RA_deg SIM_SEED none
functions=
lables=10
userdefined=angle 30 Angle_RA 20.0 none
numbers=0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
[lexer_properties]
nsis.uservars=1
nsis.ignorecase=1
[settings]
# default extension used when saving files
extension=cat
# single comments, like # in this file
comment_single=#
# multiline comments
#comment_open=
#comment_close=
# This setting works only for single line comments
comment_use_indent=true
# context action command (please see Geany's main documentation for details)
context_action_cmd=
# lexer filetype should be an existing lexer that does not use lexer_filetype itself
lexer_filetype=NSIS
[build-menu]
EX_00_LB=Execute
EX_00_CM=
EX_00_WD=
FT_00_LB=
FT_00_CM=
FT_00_WD=
FT_02_LB=
FT_02_CM=
FT_02_WD=
Now my example.cat looks like this:
# example.cat
angle 30
Angle_RA 20.0
object none
# Till now,
# Words highlighted : angle 30 object none
# Words not highlighted: Angle_RA 20.0
# I like them also to be highlighted!
I got syntax highlighting for only two words, viz., object and none.
I tried styling equal to Fortran since it has uppercase letters but it also did not work.
How can we get the syntax highlight for the variable names which contains uppercase, lowercase, and underscore?
For example:
I got syntax highlight for words: object none.
But, did not get syntax highlight for words: Angle_RA 20.0
Also, I my numbers 0,1,..,9 are highlighted but the decimals are not highlighted. How can we highlight decimals too?
For example:
I got syntax highlight for words: 1 1000 but, did not get syntax highlight for words: 49552.3 180.0
Some useful links are following:
Make Geany recognize additional file extensions
Custom syntax highlighting in Geany
http://www.geany.org/manual/current/index.html#custom-filetypes
http://www.geany.org/manual/#lexer-filetype
Instead of creating new file definition files I added file extensions for Python and it worked for me.
For example, I wanted to custom highlight the files with extension .icat (If you are interested, this is instance catalog file for Phosim Software in Astronomy.)
Drawback: The additional words are also highlighted in python scripts (.py,.pyc,.ipy)
Note: If anybody posts solution that works with new file extension, ~/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.Phosim.conf I would heartly welcome that.
My example.pcat file looks like this:
# example.pcat
Unrefracted_RA_deg 0
Unrefracted_Dec_deg 0
Unrefracted_Azimuth 0
Unrefracted_Altitude 89
Slalib_date 1994/7/19/0.298822999997
Opsim_rotskypos 0
Opsim_rottelpos 0
Opsim_moondec -90
Opsim_moonra 180
Opsim_expmjd 49552.3
Opsim_moonalt -90
Opsim_sunalt -90
Opsim_filter 2
Opsim_dist2moon 180.0
Opsim_moonphase 10.0
Opsim_obshistid 99999999
Opsim_rawseeing 0.65
SIM_SEED 1000
SIM_MINSOURCE 1
SIM_TELCONFIG 0
SIM_CAMCONFIG 1
SIM_VISTIME 15000.0
SIM_NSNAP 1
object 0 0.0 0.0 20 ../sky/sed_flat.txt 0 0 0 0 0 0 bhishan.fits 0.09 0.0 none
I want geany to highlight all first words with yellow color, numbers with mangenta, and the word 'none' with blue color.
First I created (or, edited if already exists) the file:
~/.config/geany/filetype_extensions.conf
And added following stuff inside it.
[Extensions]
Gnuplot=*.gp;*.gnu;*.plt;
Galfit=*.gal;
Phosim=*.pcat;
Python=*.py;*.pyc;*.ipy;*.icat;*.pcat
[Groups]
Script=Gnuplot;Galfit;Phosim;Python;
Then, I added the additional KEYWORDS to the already existing keywords in python filetype.
For this I created (or, edited if already exists) the file:
~/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.python
Now, the file ~/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.python looks like this:
# Author : Bhishan Poudel
# Date : June 9, 2016
# Version : 1.0
# File : Filetype for both python and phosim_instance_catalogs

Now, I restarted the geany and I can see all the first words in yellow, numbers other color and the word 'none' is blue colored.
