Perl highlighter has bugs with comments

SuperEdit 4.3.1 on Win 7.

The perl highlighter seems to have some bugs with double quotes. Examples here:

imgur dot com/QSqjqQQ

Does anyone have any fixes for this? The Perl highlighter is a .SYN text file. But I'm not sure what the syntax of each entry is.

The Problem is not with the comments, but with regural expressions.

For example, in the regex /\d"/ the double-quote is part of the regext, but the SuperEdi syntax highlighter sees it as the start of a string.

I'm afraid there is no way to specify the Syntax of Perl regexes in the .SYN Format, because there are many way how you could write a regex, for example:


Any idea how this can parsed correctly?

As a workaround I add a comment after the regex, for example:

$var =~ s/\d+"//g; #"
