Script/module formatting gotcha
further re jethro's...
Alternately, is the question 'how do I reformat/relocate the comment lines so they're not in the middle of the assignment, like yo?
# assign to $var1 the value of $var2:
# comment line1
# comment line2
# comment line100
my $var1 = my $var2 = 0;
My suspicion is that that approach to dealing with such infelicitous formating would require a truly wise AI module ...
or active if tedious utilization of the connection between brain and fingers.
