// op.c 765 else if (SvPOK(sv)) { /* perl4's way of mixing documentation and code (before the invention of POD) was based a trick to mix nroff and perl code. The trick was built upon these three nroff macros being used in void context. The pink camel has the details in the script wrapman near page 319. */ if (strnEQ(SvPVX(sv), "di", 2) || strnEQ(SvPVX(sv), "ds", 2) || strnEQ(SvPVX(sv), "ig", 2)) useless = 0; }
