Say you have 20 double quoted strings...So, Perl sees 49 quotes.

No wonder the poor thing is confused:)

    Well, yeah, didn't you see the 10 references to $"?

      Darn it! My blasted syntax highlighter is always confused by that dratted var:)

        Maybe it suggests that you should not use the var ;-)

        The syntax highlighter built into SciTE gets confused from time to time as well ... but generaly I think I improve the code if I change it to suite SciTE. If the code confused the parser it might as well confuse a programmer. Especialy if he uses something that highlights it wrong.
