Missing in user language description

    Hi!

    I've found some restrictions in the way a language can be defined using your user-defined mode, which is rather annoying in a specific language i am trying to describe.

    For examle commented lines are:
    - if the "-sign is used the remainder of the line is  
    regarded as a comment (easy enough to do
    currently).
    - If a line begins with the *-sign the rest (until
    newline) should be regarded as a comment. (This
    cannot be expressed currently)

    To be able to express the last comment-description it would need the availability of carriage-return/newline and begin-line values that could be used in the described (like a tag, for example a block with <newline>* in beginning and <newline> in the end)

    Furthermore it would be excellent if one could pair the blocks instead of just having begin-blocks and end-blocks, where you have everything, and therefore have no way of knowing which endblock will be used to end your begin block.

    Other than those additions it is a simply great and small, efficient program!

      It works to me to define "*" as the comment line mark.
      Which version do you use?

        An auto-closing of tags in HTML and XML language could be very useful. Just like notepad2.

          The TextFX plugin does it.
