( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi

  • division: the final .el should be a single one, sure. I was thinking of a build and testing process triggered from a Perl script joining different parts. Testing with different emacs versions° is not easy and you'll find more contributors providing Perl tests.
  • docs: sorry, you misunderstood me, cperl has a long list of one liner description for each Perl command. IMHO these should be outsourced.
  • info: What you mean is the hypertext help system which relies on static perldocs in "info" format. Info is great for navigation of deep manuals, perldocs are rather flat and should be IMHO better displayed with "woman.el" (man doesn't work on windows).
  • if you drop support for older or other versions like XEmacs you should maybe consider renaming the fork of cperl-mode

On a different note: elisp regexing is a PITA because of slasheritis and pretty unreadable. (Btw: XEmacs solved this with raw strings)

I was thinking of translating Perl regex to lisp to open up for a broader audience.
