The syntax is changed only for table SYNTAX_TABLE, which defaults to
 the current buffer's syntax table.
The first character of NEWENTRY should be one of the following:
  Space or -  whitespace syntax.    w   word constituent.
  _           symbol constituent.   .   punctuation.
  (           open-parenthesis.     )   close-parenthesis.
  "           string quote.         \\   escape.
  $           paired delimiter.     '   expression quote or prefix operator.
  <           comment starter.      >   comment ender.
  /           character-quote.      @   inherit from `standard-syntax-table'.
  |           generic string fence. !   generic comment fence.

Only single-character comment start and end sequences are represented thus.
Two-character sequences are represented as described below.
The second character of NEWENTRY is the matching parenthesis,
 used only if the first character is `(' or `)'.
Any additional characters are flags.
Defined flags are the characters 1, 2, 3, 4, b, p, and n.
995 996 997 998
 1 means CHAR is the start of a two-char comment start sequence.
 2 means CHAR is the second character of such a sequence.
 3 means CHAR is the start of a two-char comment end sequence.
 4 means CHAR is the second character of such a sequence.
999 1000 1001 1002 1003 1004

There can be up to two orthogonal comment sequences.  This is to support
language modes such as C++.  By default, all comment sequences are of style
a, but you can set the comment sequence style to b (on the second character
of a comment-start, or the first character of a comment-end sequence) using
this flag:
1005 1006
 b means CHAR is part of comment sequence b.
 n means CHAR is part of a nestable comment sequence.
1007

1008
 p means CHAR is a prefix character for `backward-prefix-chars';
1009
   such characters are treated as whitespace when they occur
1010 1011
   between expressions.
