It might be easy, but it is also very subtle and not very noticable. I guess a good syntax highlighter could solve that, but it looks like something that would be easy to overlook while debugging.

I comment out blocks very quickly using my editor. In Vim I just cursor to the { or the }, then hit Shift-V % .c and the entire block is commented. To uncomment, use the same procedure except use .C instead of .c.

The .c command is provided by the BlockComment plugin found here. The Shift-V starts line by line highlighting and the % finds the matching bracket to the one you are currently on or near. You could probably write a simple macro that does the same thing in one or two keypresses as well.

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.
