( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi Monks. Does anyone know if I can write comments in Perl without opening each line with #. For example, I would like not to have to type "#" 4 times in the following code:
$paramData = &replaceParamsInString($self->{debug},$contentRequest,$pa +ramsMLToRequest); #A hash named $requestParams is created containing all #the data needed for the http transaction. This data #is then stored in $self->RequestParams, and no further data # is needed. my $requestParams = $self->{RequestParams}; $requestParams->{cgi_method} = $self->{method}; $requestParams->{url} = $self->{Find}->{baseUrl}; $requestParams->{httpContent} = $paramData;
I know that in Java you can place a */ or something similar at the beginning and end of the comments, and then not have to start each new sentence with a star. Is there something similar in Perl?
Thanks in advance,
Guy Naamati

In reply to Multi-line comments in perl code? by mrguy123

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
