[Nano-devel] [PATCH V2] syntax: c: change the highlighting of preprocess

From: Benno Schulenberg
Subject: [Nano-devel] [PATCH V2] syntax: c: change the highlighting of preprocessor directives
Date: Tue, 2 Apr 2019 14:46:15 +0200

From: Liu Hao <address@hidden>

V2: The start-of-buffer anchor \` was included into one of the regexes, to
    prevent color spilling mistakenly onto a subsequent line.

[Sixteen months ago we left things hanging there, because I was unsure of the
portability of \`. [1]  But since then we have retired fixbounds() and no one
has complained (yet), and from looking at the output of 'objdump -t src/nano |
grep rpl_' on the various BSDs, they all appear to use the regex module from
gnulib anyway, so \< and \> and \` will be available, so we can use these.]


Some of these directives are now colored in their entirety, while for
a few others it's still just the keyword itself that is colored.
