TigerSHARC end of instruction line ;;

One of the biggest problems with reading or writing TigerSHARC assembly code is the use of the double colon at the end of the instruction line.

 

I am always forgetting it -- and when doing a code review on customized code you always miss the fact that you have forgotten to put it there.

 

Many years ago I put in an update request that ;; automatically appear as "bold" to make it more apparent -- but nothing happened.

 

This year I had the thought of making the ;; more apparent by changing the TigerSHARC .ini file to customize ;; as a special highlighted character

 

The problem here is the following

 

Smith = Keyword     works in the .ini file

 

but

 

;; = Keyword    does not work as the first ; in the line indicates the start of a comment in the .ini file

 

Any suggestions of a work-around?   Thanks
