Hope this will give better comment highlighting and comment folding for your SAS source code with Notepad++. Please note that all color syntax now include the “Regular Expression” problem workaround.

Having used Notepad++ with an earlier SAS style, I tried exploring whether there was something in the syntax that was the issue, but I think it may related to the file encoding. Github might have a unix prepared copy of the contents which are exporting in my case as a UTF-8 with BOM.

I don’t want to accidentally execute arbitrary code. Above uses a regular expression to prefix every line of ~/.colcmp.arrays.tmp.sh with a bash comment character (#).
