[erlang-bugs] ASN.1 compiler does not support multiline comments

I would not call this a bug. It is rather that the Erlang ASN.1
compiler does not support
the ASN.1 standard from 2002 (or very little of it).

We have so far not seen the need to support the 2002 specs of ASN.1 (where
multi-line comments and other things where introduced).

Do you have an example of standard protocol specified using ASN.1 (2002)?
Or are you creating your own ASN.1 specifications?
