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

I'm pretty sure there isn't anyway. BUT! If you use vim, there's always vimscripts!

For the vimscript below to work just put it in your .vimrc file. It assumes you have marked a maker 'a' (':mark a' while NOT in insert mode) at the beginning of where you want your un/comment block. Then just scroll down to where you want it to end and type in ',cb#' (while NOT in insert mode) to comment out the block. Alternatively you can type in ',ucb#' to uncomment a block of code.

nmap ,cb# :'a,.s/^/#/gi<CR>:nohl<CR> nmap ,ucb# :'a,.s/^#//g<CR>:nohl<CR>

Since perl doesn't have a standard IDE, i think the answer to this question is largely going to depend on what editor your using for developement.

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

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
