This could probably be of interest for you, it redirects the help message from the minibuffer to a tooltip at point.

Probably not the best lisp style, I hacked it about ten years ago, but it never failed me.

It's basically monkey-patching cperl-describe-perl-symbol with an around-function to show the tooltip at the point of the cursor.

I think pos-tip.el needs to be installed first.

(require 'pos-tip) (require 'cl) (add-hook 'cperl-mode-hook (lambda () ;; (cperl-toggle-autohelp) (setq cperl-lazy-help-time 2) (defadvice cperl-describe-perl-symbol (around cperl-describe-p +erl-symbol-tooltip activate) "redirect message to tooltip" (flet ((message (fmt &rest args) (pos-tip-show (apply 'format fmt args)))) ad-do-it)) ))

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
