Using a match instead of region would be simpler.

If one takes KATE's c.xml as canonical, supported suffixes (but not necessarily on all build configurations) are all combinations of 'U', 'L' and 'L', with no mention of 'u'. That makes: ULL, LUL, LLU, LL, UL, LU, L and U. As a regexp, 'U?L?L?|L?(UL|LU)'.

Standard C only allows the following suffixes (in lower or uppercase):

  u, ul, ull, l, lu, and llu.

D'oh! I looked again, and I see that c.xml says 'insensitive="TRUE"', so all of the above are case-insensitive. But you are saying that 'ull'/'llu' are supported, but NOT 'll'? That can't be right? I would not be surprised if 'lul' is not well-supported, however.

...and I don't think it is. According to a cross-platform-support header we use, 'LL' is supported on the default compilers for HPUX, Linux, Irix, and Solaris (in 32-bit mode); possibly others as well.

Microsoft's compiler, being the non-standard aberration it is, of course uses 'i64' for 64-bit integral constants. I don't think we need to worry about supporting _that_ :-).
