Description

16 years ago
rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/2002041603

these two lines result in bold text:
-    nsHTTPFinalListener *fl = NS_STATIC_CAST (nsHTTPFinalListener*, sl);
+        nsHTTPFinalListener *fl = NS_STATIC_CAST (nsHTTPFinalListener*, sl);
I know that this is currently intentional (ie not random), but I'd like to see
if we can come up with a way to reduce this false positive.

I have one suggestions for rules which would handle this case:
abandon searches at ()s

I had considered that recognizing diffs /^[+-]/ might be useful but after some
thought I decided against that suggestion.

Low priority. There're not that many C-programmers in the world...
