@ foo 
is not valid Gauss. The valid Gauss comments are
 
/* this kind of comment can be nested */ 

@ this kind of comment cannot be nested @ 

For example, the followings are valid gauss comment:

Case 1:
/* foo1
  /* foo2 */
*/

Case 2:
@ foo2@

Case 3:

@ foo3
@

I just want to see the colors are different in comment areas. For example,

{ans1,ans2} = call_foo(arg1,arg2,arg3); @This is foo subroutine@
/* foo is calculating ....
 ....
*/

I would like to see highlight in
@This is foo subroutine@
/* foo is calculating ....
 ....
*/

Thanks.
