Through the Epsilon Book comments in the source code are declared by usinng "//" or "--". However I can not seem to find a concrete description of the supported comment markers. I have used Java style multi-line comments "/* ... */" and they also seem to be supported. However, when using this style, the editor fails to correctly detect the closing "*/" when creating the comment or editing it and the rest of the source code is highlighted as comments. IF I save the file, the parser does not complaint so I guess the comments are being parsed correctly. If I close and reopen the file the highlighting is fixed and comment coloring is kept correctly until the "*/".
Is this a bug in the eol editor/tokenizer,or are Java style comments not fully supported?
