You could plan to run all your Perl sources through the C preprocessor before further use and that way co-opt its functionality. The added benefit is that you can then use all of the C preproprocessor functionality, e.g. macros, defined pre-execution symbols and so on in your Perl code - in fact this particular usage pales into triviality compared with what then becomes possible for projects with complex implementation and/or porting requirements.
