The last item may change with Perl6, for "=begin/end", but the rest will probably not.
Actually, the first point:
POD is the official way to do multi line comments in Perl
will also change in Perl 6, which introduces an indentable, nestable, multi-line-able delimited comment:
#{ comment here } #[ comment here ] #( comment here ) #< comment here > # comment etc.
A delimited comment is introduced by a # followed immediately by any kind of opening bracket. It is closed by the corresponding closing bracket.

Title:
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.
