Hi loris.
I have used emacs quite a lot in the past (a few years actually), and had quite a comfortable time with many things (including comments). Since then I have moved to a company where vi is the standard, and although it took me a while to get used to it (what in the %$!* is escape mode?) I eventually managed to regain all my old editing tools along with a few new ones (":s 1,25" is usually enough to comment out lines 1-25). What my question was (and after a lengthy discussion I assume that the answer is no) is whether I can write multi-line comments in Perl without perlpod. Although the answer is negative, I have learned about a few new tools that can make comments easier.
Thanks for your good advice,
