The discussion at


would indicate this was just a "typo" in the online posix docs.
Is any change in Emacs needed?

If you read the thread again, you'll see that there's no disagreement between me and the others over what the correct syntax is, just a disagreement over whether the POSIX document does in fact represent it. Emacs is definitely getting the coloring wrong.

As Eric Blake says:

Which means the POSIX-mandated syntax should really be represented as:

for name [in [word...] ;] do

which neatly demonstrates both the points I raised in my bug report.
