I noticed just now that commenting blocks with --[ and ]-- works, despite the fact that the highlighting does not show it.
Yes. It is part of lua its helpful.
I guess you mean ‘the fact that it comments’ and not ‘the fact that it doesn’t show as commented in Codea’?

Sorry about not having this feature yet. It’s a tricky one to implement given the way the syntax highlighting works.
