Even simpler (and faster):
syn region rubyFunction matchgroup=rubyDefine start="\<def\>\ze\s*"
When using a backtracking regex matcher (juck!), using [[:space:]]
over \s and a branch in this instance is "a lot" faster.
But why aren't we doing this with something simpler like
syn keyword rubyDefine def nextgroup=rubyFunction skipwhite skipnl
syn match rubyFunction '\h\w*'
? That's as simple and fast as it gets, and it's more true to the
Ruby syntax, because you can write things like
puts 'Hi, I'm method a!'
