a possible syntax highlighting bug when posting python code ?

  1. hi, the post is
    http://ilmvfx.wordpress.com/2013/08/27/improved-maya-ref-parser/

    see the code port line 78 -82 for example, it seems when it sees this

    nspace = args.ns.strip('"')

    it thinks " means start a new string, but it's actually in tow single quotes, which leads to incorrect syntax highlighting,

    is this a bug ?

    The blog I need help with is ilmvfx.wordpress.com.

  3. Hi there,

    It looks like the syntax highlighter is getting confused by the double quotation mark. You can avoid this by escaping the double quotation mark as follows:

    nspace = args.ns.strip('\"')

    Our syntax highlighter is based on Alex Gorbatchev's SyntaxHighlighter. If you think this is a bug in the highlighter that should be corrected, I recommend reporting it at that link so it can be fixed in SyntaxHighlighter for everyone who uses it. :)

    Please let me know if you have any questions about that!
