[Shankhoneer] Point noted. I will remove these noises in my patch


2. don't use doxygen comments for in-code comments
[Shankhoneer] I have changed all in-code doxygen comments to c-style

[Shankhoneer] Fixed this too

[Shankhoneer] I dont understand exactly what you are trying to suggest. Do
you mean that I should create a function that returns which color the line
should be given the error message? I have never used C before in production
software as big as geany so please feel free to comment directly what would
be a better approach.

[Shankhoneer] I couldnt find filetypes_parse_compiler_line() but I found
filetypes_parse_error_message() in filetypes.c

[Shankhoneer] I have forked the project and working on the forked repo.

[Shankhoneer] Woah! #907 is like a long TODO list for C++11. I have started
to look into some of the issues like 5e.
