Leading Space in Regex String breaks Perl Syntax coloring (and consequently, global search)

Donald Donovan 8 years ago 0
In Perl, when the first character in a regular expression is a literal space, for example
/ carrots/ 
_everything_ following the space is colored as if it were one big string.  If this weren't bad enough, global file search (ctrl+shift+F) ignores anything in perl files that comes after the syntax break.
