HEREDOC support / highlighting

Postby rickhellewell » Sun Mar 06, 2011 2:37 am

Was wondering if there is current support for HEREDOC in Rapid PHP 2010. There are some old messages from 4 years ago about HEREDOC not being support, but nothing recent.

It appears from using the latest version that there are still some highlighting/formatting problems when a HEREDOC 'hunk' has $variables and single or double quote characters.

What is the current status of HEREDOC support? And what plans for HEREDOC?

THanks....Rick..

Hi,

Currently you can use a heredoc string literal starting with "EO". At least syntax highlighting should work ok.
I also think the PHP formatting should work ok, even if a heredoc string is inside the document. Doesn't it?

** BUMP **

Any movement on this?

Given the nature of my current major project I expect to make use of heredoc quite a lot over the next twelve months.

Hi. I have just installed Rapid PHP to evaluate as an alternative to the deceased PHPDesigner.

Unfortunately HereDOC still isn't supported, or at least if it has been implemented it is severely broken. This is immediately a deal breaker for me and, I am sure, many others.

Highlighting is broken when apostrophes, quotes or escape codes are in the contained text (possibly others too) and because of this it breaks all highlighting thereafter in the rest of the code.

I see from a post on here from 2006 - ten years ago! - that this was present all the way back then. Is this going to be fixed, and anytime soon?

HereDoc is supported in all parsers, syntax checkers etc, but you're right, not in syntax highlighter. I'll find out why it hasn't been added thus far and if we can find a way to add it.
