#1117 Syntax Highlight bug in LexCPP.cxx

Scintilla (793)

When multiple double quote ( " ) is written in odd numbers, I doesn't highlight correctly.
For example, """

I doesn't happen frequently, but in .rc files it can be used sometimes.

    I attatched a .rc file.
    Open it with SciTE or Notepad2.

    Triple quoted strings (style SCE_C_TRIPLEVERBATIM) were added in 2.25 to support the Vala language. This was Feature Request #3177601. It would be possible for someone to add an option to turn this on/off if they wanted.
    It is unlikely I will work on this.

    I've written a simple patch for LexCPP that adds an option to control highlighting of triple-quoted strings: http://pastebin.com/uRGYH26v

    Committed fix. There is now an option lexer.cpp.triplequoted.strings to enable the recognition of triple quoted strings.
