That'll work great until you use some syntax-highlighting editor that mistakes it for a quoted string :)

You++ anyway, for finding an almost-good use of the single-quote package seperator.

send money to your kernel via the boot loader.. This and more wisdom available from Markov Hardburn.

    Don't forget about another great use of the apostrophe namespace separator.

    This already happens whenever I use `, #, ", and ' in regexps. What editor are you using that it correctly parses perl? Both the cperl-perl and perl-perl major modes of emacs get this sort of stuff wrong all the time.

      Oh, mine messes it up, too (that being vim 6.3). Quotes and comments in regexen are usually OK, but the quote-like package seperator horribly confuses it. Which is fine, since I don't use it anyway.

      SciTE (a Scintilla editor) handles quote chars inside regexes (and complexities like qw//, qq// and q// highlighting for many different values of '/'). I enjoy it immensely.
