Usages of backtick inline comments spanning multiple lines breaks code navigation

Hello,

I’ve stumbled a weird bug/feature (at least did not find a way to disable it :smiley: )

The screenshot below tells the story by itself:

and pasting the code snippet itself below:

#!/bin/bash
function catWithLotsOfMultilineComments {
  local my_var_1="my_value_1 "
  local my_var_2="my_value_2 "
  local my_var_3="my_value_3 "
  local my_var_4="my_value_4 "

  echo \
    `# Comment 1` \
    "$my_var_1" \
    `# Comment 2.1` \
    `# Comment 2.2` \
    "$my_var_2" \
    `# Comment 3.1` \
    `# Comment 3.2` \
    `# Comment 3.3` \
    "$my_var_3" \
    `# Comment 4.1` \
    "$my_var_4" \
  ;
}

# Execute
catWithLotsOfMultilineComments

Not sure if this will help, but my “rig” setup:

Hi @konstantinast,
thanks for reporting and the code snippet!
The real issue here is the parsing of comments wrapped in backticks. The message about the unused local is caused by the incorrect parsing.

I’ll fix this for the next bug-fix update.

Fixed for the next update (1.5.14). I’m planning to release it next week.
