I fixed the comment problem. The whole thing is still a little inefficient, I think. If you type at the end of a line with a comment on it, you can see the character appear in black, then change to gray. *shrug*

If you are writing a syntax highlighter, as it appears, keep in mind that it's more difficult than it first appears. You have to keep in mind the possibility of comments and keywords appearing within strings, among many other subtleties. See On Parsing Perl, and my Syntax::Highlight::Perl for some more info.

[LanX]: It's not a perfect solution, since it means invoking the monastery several times, but IMHO still better than hosting on another server
[holli]: i'm surprised it even executes. the server sends text/plain AND a content-dispositio n header
[holli]: this really really should not be executed as Javascript
erix's head is getting content indisposed
[holli]: maybe try a GET instead?
[moritz]: I must say, when I was very active on perlmonks, I got really used to the markup and all the workflows
[moritz]: and then I didn't post for a while, and then tried to answer a question. It nearly drove me nuts
[moritz]: when you try to quote part of a question, you have to know/guess/reverse -engineer what kind of markup they used
[holli]: see? https://imgur.com/ a/XpF4b
[moritz]: and stuff it into a <blockquote>...</ blockquote>, which is, like, not at all bulky
