bug#24172: 25.1; Doc of parse-sexp-ignore-comments: what does a value of nil mean?
Sun, 07 Aug 2016 01:28:30 +0200
in the docstring of `parse-sexp-ignore-comments' (or at least in the
manual), I miss a description about what a value of nil exactly means:
How are comments treated then? Are they treated as separate units that
can then be parsed as well, but separately from code, or are they treated
as indistinguishable from code?
For example, if parsing starts from within a comment, and parsing finds
the end of the comment and is not yet finished, is parsing just
continued inside the following code, or does it fail?
Thanks in advance,
