in reply to quotes in Perl

In regards to:
  • The end tag specifier must follow the << without any intermediate space.
  • The actual end tag must be exactly the same as specified in the introduction line.
  • The introduction line must end with a semicolon.
only the middle is correct. The only time the tag specifier must immediately follow the << is when it isn't quoted. That is, << "FOO" is ok whereas << FOO is not. And as for the semicolon, the truth of that matter is that the << "XXX" is merely a placeholder for a quoted string and the rest of the expression its in must continue to flow naturally.

[Corion]: Meh. I need to find myself a better "programming" feed than r/programming (which is just HackerNews reposts and advertisements, very little code). Maybe I should select a list of links that I liked on r/programming and then google for ...
[Corion]: ... an aggregator site that also listed (ideally) all of these links once. And maybe also have an exclude list to blacklist some of the most spammy links that the site may have never mentioned at all
[marto]: I gave up reading HN at all, and feel much better for it :P
[Corion]: Now, how to best automate that Google search ... :-)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I'm also short of not reading it at all. I already stopped reading it in the morning because it gave me a foul mood.
[Corion]: The good posts on HN are the non-computing posts. Most of the other stuff is maybe relevant to you if you are 20 and live in Silicon Valley...
[Corion]: Two attributes that don't describe me.
[Corion]: Maybe I should also write a curator for HN or simply not read it anymore, like you do.
