perltidy - no space before comment if first item in block

larryk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

perltidy -bl -bbc is doing everything right but I want to negate its effect in one situation, namely the conversion of:

while ($foo) { # blah blah blah --$foo; }

to:

while ($foo) { # blah blah blah --$foo; }

If the comment is the first item in a block, I don't want it to have a blank line inserted above (there's already enough new space generated above by -bl: braces left - not my personal choice btw!).

I have checked all the docs and SuperSearched and googled and am none the wiser - anyone done this before?

Cheers,

   larryk

    Not exactly what you want but -bl -nbbc -bbb may be more agreeable. Or -nsob to leave optional vertical white alone.

    T'were I fussy I'd alias perltidy to perltidy and a postprocessing script to handle this case.

    Be well,
