No

The COBOL parser doesn't make a comment green if there is a character just before the star (*).

In my environment, we put tags everywhere, and most of them have 6 characters, so most of the COBOL comments are not correctly parsed in Notepad++, and this creates a big confusion sometimes.

It is perfectly valid to have a tag of 6 characters and a star (*) just after that, and that should be parsed as a comment.

Thank you,
Nuno

    I guess this is intended as a bug-report or a support-request!

    That's true - I apologize for that. I got a bit confused on this site, and only after a while I realized I put this in the wrong category.
