    Here is the Perl code:

    print "Hello #World!n" if ($something);

    The “if ($something);” part is highlighted as comment, except for highlighting of the keyword “if” and special sign “$” takes precedence here. That is, highlighted line looks like following:

    print "Hello #World!n" if ($something);

    If I remove the sign “#” (a line comment character in Perl) from the string, the highlighting returns to normal:

    print "Hello World!n" if ($something);

    This is strange. I cannot reproduce your problem.
    Can you try resettings all configurations or Perl configuration?

    Yes, resetting fixed this. Now I remembered that I played a bit with manual comment highlighting (because of this problem, still unsolved), and my highlight rule remained from those experiments. Strange, that I did not notice it before…

    Sorry for the false alarm.
