To be specific, it is American English. Other English grammar systems still have the comma outside.

No this is coding language. It doesn't matter what language it is, in code it has to be this way.

The comma makes me scared to write punctuation inside quotation marks.

Am I allowed to put punctuation inside?

Would I have to put a comma after the punctuation if I did?

I don't know!

As far as I'm aware, Australian and British English followed this convention as well, although as an engineer I could very likely be as wrong as I am carefree about it.:P
