There is a bug in C/C++ comment highlighting (bug 11865)

Where the fix appears to be to modify the value of c-font-lock-doc-comments

Is there a way to do this in my emacs config, instead of having to keep a modified version of the original emacs source?

In the patch makes this change:

- (c-font-lock-doc-comments "/**$" limit gtkdoc-font-lock-doc-comments)
+ (c-font-lock-doc-comments "/**([^*/].*)?$" limit gtkdoc-font-lock-doc-comments)

Is there a way to apply this change locally?

  • While I didn't find an answer to this question, but managed to override the comment highlighting in this answer: emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/35001 – ideasman42 Aug 19 '17 at 11:37
  • The bug you linked to was for the previous public release of Emacs (in the year 2013), and should be fixed in the current stable release -- i.e., Emacs 25 should be fine, right? – lawlist Aug 19 '17 at 17:33
  • @lawlist - it seems its spesific to gtkdoc style (which I don't use). So I should probably write a new report. – ideasman42 Aug 19 '17 at 23:35
