Variable highlighting in double quoted strings of Perl scripts (KOMODO IDE 9.3) #914

In KOMODO IDE 9.2, variable names in double quoted strings of Perl scripts like below are highlighted.

print "printing a $variable!\n";

But they are not highlighted in 9.3.1 anymore. It seems like 9.3 broke variable highlighting in strings, at least in Perl.


I am heavily using KOMODO IDE to write Perl scripts. This is a very nice IDE and editor!

Thanks for the report. We updated our editing component (Scintilla), which has a new Perl lexer that appears to not support the functionality you describe (but adds lots of new stuff). We'll try to address this in the future.

It turns out Scintilla's new Perl lexer did support interpolated variable highlighting, but we were not set up correctly to use it. This is fixed now.
