Ow. Would it be too much to ask that it accept any sequence of opening brackets
Not to much to ask at all. At least, not as long as you can be satisfied with multiple repetitions of the same delimiter character. From the latest update of Synopsis 2:
  • For all quoting constructs that use user-selected brackets, multiple, adjacent, identical opening brackets must always be matched by an equal number of adjacent closing brackets. Bracket counting naturally applies only to sets of brackets of the same length:
        say #{{
            Comment contains unmatched } and { { { { plus a counted {{ ... }} pair.
        }} q<< <<woot>> >>   # says "<<woot>>"

Title:
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
