( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Another solution would be to look for the hash-bang line that would seem to denote the start of code, then collect it and everything up to and including the last semi-colon, and wrap in code tags. Not a perfect solution, and I'm not sure how feasible (what with everyone having different hash-bang lines and all), but a possible solution.

We could just make everything in the text box preformatted with a PRE tag. That wouldn't be a perfect solution either, but still a possible solution.

#!/usr/bin/perl

use warnings;
use strict;

#testing pre and code

Update:

After seeing kudra's response, it shouldn't be that hard to run a regexp against everyone's post (non-greedy) to be able to split up code and text. Having two code blocks could be as easy as a good rexexp.
