I'm not sure there are exact mappings between vim and emacs, since they use different concepts.

  1. I have several macro-like functions which I've defined for Perl programming convenience. For example, this creates a new sub:

    (defun perl-sub (name) "Insert a new subroutine" (interactive "*sName: ") (insert "sub {\n\n\n\n}\n") (previous-line 4) (indent-for-tab-command) (insert "my () = @_;") (search-backward "sub ") (goto-char (match-end 0)) (insert name) (search-forward "("))

    It prompts for the sub name, then outputs a bare subroutine with "my () = @_;" on the first line and putting the cursor inside the `my' list. You can then call this function with `ESC x perl-sub'; you could also bind it to key command, for example (global-set-key [f3] 'perl-sub), then you can just hit the F3 key to do it. Modifying this to output Data::Dumper stuff (good idea) would be straight-forward.

  2. I'm not sure what document templates are for. You could easily include a file with `C-x i', though, or use the above "macro" technique.

  3. For indenting, I have this inside (custom-set-variables):

    '(cperl-close-paren-offset -4) '(cperl-continued-statement-offset 2) '(cperl-indent-level 4) '(cperl-indent-parens-as-block t) '(cperl-label-offset 0) '(cperl-tab-always-indent t)

    That gets pretty close to (tab) indenting consistently with what I think is the style seen in most Perl books and documentation.

    [LanX]: It seems that PHP's official docs use "closure" and "anonymous function" interchangeably, even though their closures don't capture surrounding state without using the 'use' language construct.
    LanX explains much cargo bla ...
    [Eily]: what? I thought PHP was known for its reliable and consistent behaviour and documentation!
    [LanX]: ... and a lot of pseudo Perl experts
    [Eily]: though honestly, I'm sure I have seen people use closure to mean anonysub for perl as well
    [stonecolddevin]: good morning friends
