When faced with this dilemma Brothers you need only ask:

What
Would
Emacs
Do?

There's more than one way to do it, but only some of them actually work.

    Actually, that's ambiguous...

    M-x cperl-set-style Enter style: <TAB> BSD CPerl GNU PerlStyle C++ Current K&R Whitesmith

    So, Emacs Would Do one of the seven/eight styles above, depending on how it's customized. :-)

      Emacs does not default into cperl-mode though. It defaults into the less robust perl-mode.

      --
      perl -pe "s/\b;([mnst])/'\1/mg"

        Not my Emacs -- I use XEmacs 21, which defaults into cperl-mode. The version and type of Emacs wasn't specified in the original post.
