Syntax highlight block comment should override same for line comment

  • CoffeeScript uses ### ... ### for block comments, which works fine, but when i add a # ... line comment style to my UDL it breaks the block comment highlighting. Somehow the built-in CoffeeScript syntax highlighter does properly order the comments.

  • Hello @Cees-Timmerman,

    I think the simplest solution would be to keep the block comments definition and introduce
    another delimiter with start = # and end = ((EOL))
