in reply to Formatting Perl code with Emacs

I am using Emacs and perltidy by adding the lines

# (compile (concat "perltidy " (buffer-name)) nil) # (ediff-files (concat (buffer-name) ".tdy") (buffer-name))
to my Perl scripts.

Putting the cursor at the end of the added lines and entering control-X, control-E will execute perltidy and activate the ediff-files function in Emacs. Then I can select which part of my script I want to be changed.
