in thread Inline POD vs. EOF POD

Right on. I used to hate POD, and then I found a perl highlighting mode for emacs that highlights it properly. Now I hate that I haven't used it thus far, because it really reminds you to step back and examine your code as a critical observer.

If I knew LISP, I'd try to extend emacs to do funky visual things when it sees POD, like make the background for the entire width of that visual line a different colour or something. But alas, I don't :-(

    I am using MultiEdit.

    Comments have one background color, inline POD has different background color. Easy to see what is POD text, what are comments, and what is code (white background). Of course syntax coloring for both HTML and Perl.
    Also I have templates expanded by space (i.e. after "if ", "wh ", or "sub ". Smart indent. Integrated FTP. Integrated compiler and compiler errors. Integrated C-like macro-language. And more...I am happy... ;-)

    To make errors is human. But to make million errors per second, you need a computer.

      But... do you have VI command and editing keys, integration with the debugger (be it gdb or perl -d), integrated support for CVS, AND an integrated mail reader!?!
