( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
After finding no help via google, I figured I'd ask two perl Emacs questions here, even tho they're more about E than P, as I figure some monk may have solved them already. I don't yet know lisp, that's the root issue here. Sorry for the OT post, and thanks for any ideas --


  1. InfiniteLoop posted a snippet (check syntax of perl code and pod in emacs) which binds a perl syntax check into Emacs save.
    Asking again: could an elisp-proficient person suggest how I might change InfiniteLoop's fine tweak so that the perlsyn buffer only comes up where there is an error (rather than if everything is OK) on a save?
  2. Could an elisp-proficient person suggest how I might bind 'perltidy' to some key, such that control-whatever would tidy the current buffer?
many many many thanks

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.
