" Todo:
"  - The paramter String: is matched as flag string (because of case ignore).
"  - Pascal scripting syntax is not recognized.
"  - Embedded double quotes confuse string matches. e.g. "asfd""asfa"

" For version 5.x: Clear all syntax items
" For version 6.x: Quit when a syntax file was already loaded
if version < 600
  syntax clear
elseif exists("b:current_syntax")
