yeah- don’t use 5000. that’s too small a number.
10000 is better.
mystery of why my indentation was failing in the middle of a file solved.
in emacs’ julia mode
(defcustom julia-max-block-lookback 5000 "When indenting, don't look back more than this many characters to see if there are unclosed blocks. This variable has a moderate effect on indent performance if set too high, but stops indenting in the middle of long blocks if set too low." :type 'integer :group 'julia)
edit: backticks + which editor it is (doesn’t everybody use emacs ?)
