I want to use syntax highlighting for custom C types. Based on my coding convention, types can occur in the following places:
typedef type1 type2; (static | extern | register | volatile)? type ...; (struct | enum | union) type ...; func(type1 x, type2 x, ...); // might be a harder case
It doesn't include all the situations, but can already cover probably more than 90% of the usage. It seems to me like just a simple pattern matching problem, but I was a bit frustrated playing with vim syntax script, and couldn't get what I need. For example, I don't know how to match part of the pattern without highlighting the rest. Any ideas how to do it?
