The previous pull request got closed by my mistake as I was trying to force pushing and I couldn't make it open. I'm sorry for that 馃槥. I'm new to GitHub.

Thanks to @wecc, @Ingramz. It is now ready to be merged.

Description of the Change

As already reported in 346 flexible HEREDOC and NOWDOC as introduced in PHP 7.3 will cause syntax highlighting to be failed.


We can have syntax highlighting to be working even if we use flexible HEREDOC and NOWDOC.

Possible Drawbacks

The only change which I made was the regex of HEREDOC and NOWDOC endings, so I do not think any particular issue it might cause. As it is most likely how PHP mechanism will detect the end of these two blocks.

So :

$example = foo(
  This is just a cool test.
$rest_of_the_code = 'hello';

Should now have syntax highlighting to be worked properly.

This is on the team's list of items to review but we can't promise any specific timeframe for when it will be reviewed - but I'll mention to the other maintainers that folks checked in about this PR.
