in reply to WWED
in thread The One True Style of indentation:

Actually, that's ambiguous...

M-x cperl-set-style Enter style: <TAB> BSD CPerl GNU PerlStyle C++ Current K&R Whitesmith

So, Emacs Would Do one of the seven/eight styles above, depending on how it's customized. :-)

    Emacs does not default into cperl-mode though. It defaults into the less robust perl-mode.

    perl -pe "s/\b;([mnst])/'\1/mg"

      Not my Emacs -- I use XEmacs 21, which defaults into cperl-mode. The version and type of Emacs wasn't specified in the original post.

[shmem]: Lady_Aleena: what editor are you using, on what platform?
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, geany on Debian jessie.
[shmem]: some experience with vim?
[Lady_Aleena]: None
[shmem]: I don't know geany, and don't know whether it has support for ctags.
[Lady_Aleena]: ctags?
[shmem]: ctags is a program which (recursively) extracts the symbols from source and stores them in a one-file database. This allows you to query the locations where these symbols (e.g. a subroutine name) are used anywhere in the source code tree...
[shmem]: ...from inside the editor.
[shmem]: apt-get install exuberant-ctags
[Lady_Aleena]: I think I heard vim has a big learning curve.
