18. POD SHOULD not be interleaved with the code, and is not an alternative for comments.

Comments and POD have two different purposes. Comments are there for the programmer. The person who has to maintain the code. POD is there to create user documentation from. For the person using the code. POD should not be interleaved with the code because this makes it harder to find the code.

There would be no need for this if Perl had multi-line comments. And please don't tell me about the Acme module. Or the infamous here-doc technique. This must change! This is so sad!

PLEASE NOTE THAT you could of course just use Acme::Comment.

 [Corion]: thezip: If you want to open vim and can live with opening a second console window, use start "The results" vim.exe c:\path\to\logfile .log [thezip]: Ooops... I lied. I guess Cygwin is back. I'll just do a tail -f instead. Better. Sorry for the noise. [Corion]: Once more, I'm looking for a sane client-side framework, but I guess these don't exist. Everything I look at either uses a weirdo home-grown templating language (like Angular in all its incarnations) or uses weirdo Javascript incarnations (like ... [Corion]: ... Inferno.js, which uses ES2015) or uses some horrible amount of Javascript infrastructure before you can even render a single file.
