#54 *DOC* buffer inherits filetype

geanydoc (4)

I have Perl files set to run the perldoc command. When I select a module name and hit my keybinding for geanydoc, The resulting *DOC* window contains the appropriate manual page but with Perl keywords highlighted in the English text. Checking the Document->Set Filetype menu shows the buffer is set to Perl when it ought to be set to None.

OS is Linux CentOS 5.6 (2.6.18-238.9.1.el5.centos.plus) running GNOME 2.16.0 on x86_64.

    It was done this way to colorize documentation embedded examples. Unless you have serious reasons against this behavior I want to leave things as they are. If you think this should be discussed please post message to geany-devel mail list.
