I'm trying to match a new line character on a Vim syntax file, I can make it work when I use the patern within Vim but when I put it in my syntax file it doesn't highlight when I have a new line and when it should.
The regex part that I use for new line match is:
\_s (also tried with
Simplified version of the patern:
[,(]\_s*\zs\w\+ (same for the example and the purpose of the question)
Syntax file code inside
syn match pythonFunctionParam '[,(]\_s*\zs\w\+' [...] hi link pythonFunctionParam Error [...] let b:current_syntax = 'python'
Here is a sample test file to reproduce try:
a(matched_by_all=2, matched_by_all="anything") b( matched_by_all=3, matched_only_by_vim_search='test' ) c( matched_only_by_vim_search=3 matched_by_none="it's normal" )
When I use Vim integrated search (
/[,(]\_s*\zs\w\+ ) I get thoses matches:
matched_by_all matched_by_all matched_by_all matched_only_by_vim_search matched_only_by_vim_search
So everything works has expected
When I use syntax
syn match with the same regex I get different matches (less match):
matched_by_all matched_by_all matched_by_all
Has you can see when there is a
, on the same line it will match, but not if it's a new line.
So my question is: How to get the same match in my syntax file ?
