in thread Multi-line comments in perl code?

The last item may change with Perl6, for "=begin/end", but the rest will probably not.
Actually, the first point:
POD is the official way to do multi line comments in Perl
will also change in Perl 6, which introduces an indentable, nestable, multi-line-able delimited comment:
#{ comment here } #[ comment here ] #( comment here ) #< comment here > # comment etc.
A delimited comment is introduced by a # followed immediately by any kind of opening bracket. It is closed by the corresponding closing bracket.
