( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I just scrolled through the whole file.
I have almost the same versions.
I see breakage that seems to be caused by mis-parses of string termination... not vim-bad... but still broken ;)
Could you post that screenshot somewhere so that I may compare it?

Update: Is it possible that I've mis-configured something and it's falling back to perl-mode ?

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an emacs expert. Only really been using it for 3 months (to play with lisp and slime).

I'm much more comfortable in vim (even with its really weak syntax-highlighting). I've been using it for 10+ years so it's just what I'm used to i guess. My fingers are still not used to hitting the control/alt-keys so much.

Update 2:
Nevermind. It seems my lisp skills are quite sub-par :(

Latest ntemacs and latest cperl-mode (+ actually following instructions) seems quite fine.

Thanks grep, for making me check my facts!

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.
