05:09:36  <aidansw>Forgive me for asking, as I am sure this has been asked before. But is there any reason for not allowing nested multiline comments?
05:11:18  <jmdyck>backwards-incompatibility, I expect
05:11:24  <ljharb>i also assume there's grammar difficulties in parsing it - you'd have to keep track of how many multiline comments you're inside
05:11:30  <ljharb>but yeah at this point it couldn't be changed
05:12:21  <aidansw>Ok, thanks. Should've expected whenever something doesn't make sense it is legacy haha
05:20:27  * jmdyckquit (Quit: Leaving.)
05:20:53  <ljharb>aidansw: well i'm not sure it's *just* legacy. like i said, it'd likely make parsing much much harder for not much value
05:26:51  <aidansw>That is fair, but I don't exactly get how it would make parsing harder. From what I have seen(I have never done parsing so I wouldn't know) it just ends all multiline comments when it sees */. But } for example doesn't have the same effect. Why would */ not hav been made to behave basically the same as } but for comments?
05:29:41  <ljharb>not really sure. i assume that with comments it has to be greedy - consuming everything until it sees a stop token - but with braces it has all sorts of grammar rules to apply
05:29:50  <ljharb>maybe it also would affect code performance
05:29:56  <ljharb>hopefully someone who works on engines can weigh in :-)
05:30:39  <aidansw>Yeah, you are likely right. I can see how that could effect compile times

12:37:37  <devsnek>you just need to keep a counter you increment on /* and decrement on */
12:37:57  <devsnek>the only issue is that it makes `/* /* */` invalid
12:38:13  <devsnek>which would be a breaking change
12:41:06  <devsnek>rust has a state stack in their lexer which allows them to do things like have a multiline comment within a doc comment
