Actually, it reacts to commands that start with - or '-. The reason I use -- is because I normally use it with SQL Server to generate scripts. The reason for the '- is because I also use VB (yes, boo hiss =/). I work in a Microsoft-only shop and I find that the languages I need to use benefit greatly from code generation.

The reason for B::Deparse is so the script can get the source for the anonymous subs that have been generated. If you wish to see the entire subroutine that is generated for a macro, use the fullcodefor macro. codefor reconstructs the macro as you gave it, although it does a bit of cleaning up which I like.

As for another example, here's a simple note/recall pair of macros.

-- def_macro note my $file = shift or die "Please indicate the note you wish to create/a +ppend to"; mkdir 'notes' unless -e 'notes'; open my $fh, ">>", "notes/$file" or die "Couldn't open note for write: + $!"; local $/; print $fh $_ while <>; close $fh or die "Trouble closing file: $!"; print "Successfully appended to note $file";

-- def_macro recall my $file = shift or die "Please indicate the note you wish to open"; die "Note $file does not exist" unless -f "notes/$file"; open my $fh, "<", "notes/$file" or die "Couldn't open note for read: $ +!"; local ($/,$\); print <$fh>; close $fh or die "Couldn't close file: $!";

To use:

-- note example This should be the first line
-- note example This should be the second line
-- recall example


This should be the first line This should be the second line
