in reply to Re: check syntax of perl code and pod in emacs
in thread check syntax of perl code and pod in emacs

Sorry for all this lisp stuff, but when I
M-x cperl-check-syntax
I get
Cannot open load file: mode-compile
Again, apologies for being so emacs clueless.

Also, why, Stefan, is the method suggested by this thread not preferred? If the code to be checked involved extensive external modules, wouldn't the 'brute force' syntax check of this method better catch and display any problems using those external dependencies?

Thanks for the insight.
