Description (last modified by andrew_b) (diff)

since 4.8.24-rc1 (4.8.23-149-g06bf088bc), the syntax highlighting of shell scripts in mcedit misbehaves around matches of "function blabla()" inside literal quotes. It applies syntax highlighting as if it was function definition in normal conditions (out of literal quotes), breaking the colouring of whatever follows.

The following sample shows the issue:


function foo()
   echo "normal color highlighting"
   echo "function bar() abnormal color highlighting"

Apparently, the default is NOT in sh.syntax, because replacing w/ 4.8.23's one doesn't fix it. If the code for syntax highlighthing in mcedit itself is fault, then it's probably buggy for some other languages.

Probably, this is a result of #3981.

Right, I edited my sh.syntax to revert the changes and the issue has gone. Strangely I didn't notice the issue w/ mc 4.8.23.
