[Geany-Users] TCL and quote

Eric Crastes
Good morning

I'm using Geany since quite sometime, both on Windows and on Linux
I appreciate it because it's fast and I can use it remotely (export the display from a Linux box through SSH)

However, this morning, I face a strange and annoying problem and I don't know how to solve it.
I'm coding in TCL
In my code, I used the following line :
set n $showArray($i,"neighbor")

it looks like the first double-quote (") isn't seen by geany ! And then after this line all the rest of my code seems to be part of a string, which is annoying
The code work in TCL !

If I put a space after the comma, then the double-quote is taken into account and the highlighting of the code is ok ... but it doesn't work anymore in TCL

Please note :
I have the issue on Linux and Windows 7
Under Windows, I'm using the latest version 1.30.1
I have the same issue with Notepad++ , and MyTcl (a specialised TCL editor) but it's ok with Ased3.0 or Komodo Edit

Can I do something to correct this ?

Thanks in advance for your help

Highlighting is provided by the Scintilla editing component that is
used by Geany.  You can report the problem at
https://sourceforge.net/p/scintilla/bugs/.

When I wrote my question, I see it coming
If I really appreciate Geany, this is the point which is the more negative, according to me !
YOU are using Scintilla in the back ! not me ! I don't know nothing about Scintilla
I'm using Geany ! not Scintilla nor Scite !

Now, if I'm going to the bug tracking of Scintilla and describe my problem, they will refuse to take it into account as it's not related to Scite ?

I will try anyway, as I would like to have this issue solved, but you may think about it

Thanks

The reason that we ask the original reporters to report directly to
Scintilla is to ensure that accurate information is provided to
Scintilla, not our interpretation of what was reported, especially as
we can't be experts in all languages supported by Scintilla, and to
have the original reporter connected to the Scintilla bug to provide
additional information directly if it is requested.

There has never been any problem with Scintilla rejecting a problem
that is clearly with Scintilla itself just because it was in use by
Geany or any other editor that was not Scite.

That is not the case at all. They are two completely separate
projects. They happen to have the same author, but he purposely
designed Scintilla to be modular and usable in other projects. He is
very aware that problems in Scintilla affect a lot of editors. I mean
A LOT of editors. You named some yourself.

The most famous and popular one by far is Notepad++.

Was your plan to file bug reports with Notepad++ and MyTcl as well? I
mean, you certainly have that option. But they are likely to give you
the exact same response as Lex. I think it is understandable that you
didn't know anything about Scintilla before, but once you have learned
that Scintilla is the likely source of the problem, and that many
editors which use Scintilla are suffering from the same problem,
doesn't it simply make the most sense to take it up with Scintilla?
