Both emacs and vim handle recoloring multi-line objects like strings, etc. Xemacs
For example, in this python code fragment:
""" This is line 1 of a multi-line comment
this is line 2 of that comment
and finally, this is line 3"""
It colorizes correctly initially, but loses track of everything not on the line being
edited when changing the comment chars.
Is there any work going on to fix that? How might someone (like me0 ignorant of the
xemacs internals help?
I found someone commenting on this a year or two ago, indicating a path to a solution, but
i can't find anything about it now.
