When searching for the same solution I ran across this question on SO. It didn't do so well there, but I'd like an answer to the same question.

Would it be acceptable to post the same question here on Vim.SE?

I think that, here, I might get an answer from someone with more detailed knowledge of regex and Vim's syntax highlighting system. I answered the question with my best regex fix, but my regex knowledge is not very deep.

  • Also see the "linked" sidebar for that question for some more related discussions. In brief, if you feel a better answer can be given then what's on Stack Overflow: then yes, feel free to re-post. If the question is already adequately answered: then no, probably best to not re-post. May 17, 2017 at 17:36
  • Thank you for explaining. That's basically what I wanted to know.
