Tutorial on creating complex syntax's


I’ve spent days trying to write a syntax file for some propitiatory 4gl language and I am getting stuck.
Is there a way to debug the syntax or an online tutorial?

Here is some sample code to parse, I have rules for the general code but the nohide is a part of the procedure head block and i am getting stuck on the push’s and pop’s



I’m not sure about tutorials, but generally syntax definitions are debugged by analyzing the context stack and scope stack at points in the file where the highlighting goes wrong. View menu -> Developer -> Show Scope Name.
