digitalmars.D - Is there a macro for code snippets introduced with "---"?

reply Andrei Alexandrescu <SeeWebsiteForEmail erdani.org> writes:
Trying to to this:

//////////////// file.dd
This will be highlighted:

---
int i;
---

This should also be but it isn't:

$(MYMACRO
int j;
)

Macros:
MYMACRO = Code begins
---
$0
---
Code ends
//////////////// file.dd ends

The expansion doesn't result in highlighted code. Is there a macro 
equivalent for "---"?


Thanks,

Andrei

That renders the code in constant-width font, but it's not colorized. -- Andrei

The problem is that syntax highlighting of code blocks happens at an earlier stage according to the spec (see "Phases of Processing" at http://dlang.org/spec/ddoc.html). I just checked and I'm actually doing it the other way around in DDOX, without encountering different results so far, so it may be realistic to change this for Ddoc, too.

Thanks. I think the best way to do it is to have the earlier stage transform all sugar (---, backticks, tags with colons, ...) to standard macros, and then make one pass that expands macros. That gives maximum control to the user and allows us to e.g. improve the sugar easily. -- Andrei
