Description iainhallam 2014-04-23 11:53:57 UTC
I'm used to seeing Linux shell scripts in NotePad++, using the Scintilla text editor component. The syntax highlighter that comes with that sees a difference between variables in braces and those without:

$VAR vs. ${VAR}

Being able to highlight them differently allows me to check for some kinds of common shell script errors where having the braces makes it easier to see what's going on, but in NetBeans, it looks as though I can only change the highlighting on ALL identifiers, rather than distinguish between them.

Does this need a grammar update to fix, or something deeper?
