in thread My day with Damian Conway

sub unindent { my $str = shift; (my $s) = $str =~ m/^(\s+)/; $str =~ s/^$s//gm; return $str; }

This will look at the first line and extract that much leading whitespace from every line so does what you want without the .

    Um, no, you missed the whole point.

    print unquote( <<" TEST" ); First line Second line Third line Fourth line TEST
    Tell me what that should produce and I'll tell you what my tab stops were set to and that you were wrong. :) (And don't be fooled by how your browser happens to display that code.)

[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
