String Escape Sequence Highlighting
Comment 1 Victor Vasilyev 2008-03-20 15:46:25 UTC
Please, verify this issue against the latest build from the trunk, and close it if all are OK.

Otherwise, please, provide detailed specification about _ALL_ String Escape Sequences that must be highlighted in the
"String Literals" section located here:
This part of specification should be following the words:
"Requirement: All String Escape Sequences inside a string literal should be highlighted."
Comment 2 David Strupl 2008-04-03 09:08:23 UTC

this does not seem like implemented in my current build.

Please try typing " \uabcd \b \n " in the java editor and in the fx editor. I guess the result should be similar.

I am not sure about JFX but for java the escape sequences are defined here
in section 3.10.6 + \u which is covered elsewhere in the spec.

Rasta said he knows where to look for the implementation --> assigning to him ;-)
