I tried applying this script to itself. That was to check if significant uses of '#' were handled properly. The results were, uhhh . . . unfortunate.

  1. It stripped the shebang line, which doesn't look exotic at all.
  2. It did
    -if ( $us eq "ee" ) { $comm = ';'; } else { $comm = '#'; } +if ( $us eq "ee" ) { $comm = ';'; } else { $comm = '
    leaving an unclosed quote in the code.
  3. It did
    - die(&pwarn($comm)) if $topline =~ /\#\!.*perl/i ; + die(&pwarn($comm)) if $topline =~ /\
    leaving an open regex match.
  4. It did
    - if ( $topline =~ /(\s+)\#\!/ ) { + if ( $topline =~ /(\s+)\
    to the same effect.

I think your e can only be applied in the simplest circumstances.

Don't feel too bad, the saying goes, "Only perl can parse Perl." To do this sort of thing properly really does require a parser.

After Compline,
