Modifying this to output Data::Dumper stuff (good idea) would be straight-forward.Here's my attempt. I'd be very grateful if someone who knows Emacs could actually try it.
(defun perl-dbg (name) "Insert a debugging print statement" (insert "use Data::Dumper qw( Dumper );\nwarn Dumper [ ]\n") (search-backward "[ ")
I'm not sure what document templates are for.The idea is that you hit a key, and the editor pastes in a template from another file. Any suggestions for how to do that would be greatly appreciated.
For indenting, I have this inside (custom-set-variables):I'm guessing:
Outdent 4 columns on a closing paren?'(cperl-close-paren-offset -4)
Indent 2 columns when a statement wraps?'(cperl-continued-statement-offset 2)
Indent four columns per indentation level?'(cperl-indent-level 4)
Indent parens like blocks?'(cperl-indent-parens-as-block t)
Put labels in the zeroth column?'(cperl-label-offset 0)
Convert tabs to spaces?'(cperl-tab-always-indent t)
Could someone knowledgeable confirm (or correct) those guesses?
