It's not that easy

for instance:

1) comments '#' should (mostly) follow a newline or a semicolon or to be more precise the '#' shouldn't be preceded by a quote-like operator (single s, y tr, q, qq, qr or qw or whatever)

2) strings are closed by the same quote so you need to capture the opening one and check the ending with \1.

3) __DATA__ must appear at line start, OTOH the existence of DATA is already a good indicator for perlcode.

I think discussing single strategies is for vain, in the end you have to test and train different criteria against a suitable big amount of perlmonk posts, to see if the code-sections are found.

With bayes classifier there is a very good mathematical method to combine the probabilities of such methods.

Some of the products I listed in OP use this approach, they are just not trained for perlmonks posts (where tiny code-snippets also appear in text) and have maybe a to heavy footprint to be integrated here.

update

For instance highlight.js has a function which returns the guessed language.

Cheers Rolf

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
