When writing C/C++ code in eclipse, is it possible to set up the syntax colouring in such a way that it displays comments starting with /** in another colour than normal multi-line comments (starting only with /*)?

What I want to acheive is basically a javadoc-style colouring for comments attached to methods/classes.

I think you'd be better asking this question over at Stackoverflow, as I'd think this question would qualify as a programming question. – Paul Hay Jul 9 '13 at 9:56
@PaulHay A question about changing the options of a program on Stack Overflow is going to get booted back to Super User pretty quickly... – Jul 9 '13 at 9:59
I suppose, but the question's more likely to find someone who's already solved this question for their own needs on stackoverflow. – Paul Hay Jul 9 '13 at 10:05
Have you looked under Syntax Coloring preferences to see how Comment colours can be customised? – Karan Jul 9 '13 at 19:18
@Karan I have, you can set appearance individually for single- and multi-line comments, which are coloured regardless of the number of asterisks on the first line. – who.knows Jul 10 '13 at 7:39
