in reply to Perl code - sometimes UGLY...

Get a decent editor that color-codes program source. TextPad, and UltraEdit are a couple of examples.

    Too true. But when I'm on the go, reading a printout, yes I do that, it does not help.

      Solutions:

      • Get the editor to print its syntax colouring (or dump colouring to html) and print in colour
      • Get a highlighter and do it manually. Added bonus: it'll be done just the way you want it and you'll know up to where you've read.

      Ok, dump Perl and try Lisp ;-)

      print+qq(\L@{[ref\&@]}@{['@'x7^'!#2/"!4']});
