in thread To Single Quote or to Double Quote

I second your recommendation to use a syntax-highlighting editor, but I want to expand. Not all editors (even fte, sadly, which I loved) handle complex quoting in Perl in a sane manner. For example, an editor might have trouble with some of:

qq[]; s///; y///; ##and so on, any with three separators s[][]; ##etc m,/,; ##non-standard matching, esp with a slash m/\//; #matching with an escaped version of a delimeter

The only editor I've ever found that handles all of those correctly is SciTE.

require General::Disclaimer;
s//2fde04abe76c036c9074586c1/; while(m/(.)/g){print substr(' ,JPacehklnorstu',hex($1),1)}

    FYI - FTE handles all those just fine. It's not perfect, but those particular types are working currently. I've fixed many of the perl syntax highlighting problems in FTE, but I don't think any of those ever had a problem that I had to fix.

    My Windows editor of choice handles all of that just fine. I wish they made a Linux version.

    Linux, sci-fi, and Nat Torkington, all at Penguicon 3.0
    perl -e 'print(map(chr,(0x4a,0x41,0x50,0x48,0xa)))'
