bug#11531: 24.1.50; electric-pair-mode needs to detect apostrophes in st

From: Simon Law
Subject: bug#11531: 24.1.50; electric-pair-mode needs to detect apostrophes in strings or comments
Date: Mon, 21 May 2012 00:33:47 -0400

Reproduction steps:

$ emacs -Q
M-x js-mode
M-x electric-pair-mode
Type: // Simon's comment
Press RET
Type "Simon's string"
Press RET

Expected result:

// Simon's comment
"Simon's string"

Actual result:

// Simon's comment'
"Simon's string'"


Inside a comment or string, in a programming mode, we can try to detect
apostophes. An apostrophe is likely if you've inserted a single-quote
that immediately follows a word character.

Here is my workaround:

(defadvice electric-pair-post-self-insert-function (around
  "Fix electric-pair to handle apostrophes inside strings or comments"
  (let* ((quick-syntax-info (syntax-ppss))
         (inside-string (fourth quick-syntax-info))
         (inside-comment (fifth quick-syntax-info)))
    (if (not (eq last-command-event ?\'))
        ;; Only deal with single-quote characters
      (let* ((char-before-insert (char-before (1- (point))))
             (char-before-syntax (and char-before-insert
                                     (char-syntax char-before-insert))))
        ;; We want the character before the self-insert-command
        (if (and (or inside-string inside-comment)
                 (eq char-before-syntax ?w))
            ;; Single-quotes inside a string or comment, and immediately
            ;; following a word, are actually apostrophes and should not
            ;; be paired.
