I upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and this has Vim version 8.0.
This newer version has MatchIt setup to ignore parenthesis, brackets, etc. found inside comments and strings. Although it is at times useful, I prefer to be able to match all of those characters because I often write code in my comments (i.e. for documentation purposes, showing examples).
Although there are times when it is nice to have it this way (ignoring comments/strings), for me it is really rarely useful.
Is there a way for me to turn off that feature with one flag or another?
