in reply to Script/module formatting gotcha

further re jethro's...

Alternately, is the question 'how do I reformat/relocate the comment lines so they're not in the middle of the assignment, like yo?

# assign to $var1 the value of $var2: # comment line1 # comment line2 # .... # comment line100 my $var1 = my $var2 = 0;

My suspicion is that that approach to dealing with such infelicitous formating would require a truly wise AI module ...
or active if tedious utilization of the connection between brain and fingers.

    I have to protest profoundly to this blatant misuse of my most illustrious name in connection with riff-raff like jettero ;-)

    Agreed, and in this case the AI between the chair and keyboard was the source of the confusion. However, I think it may be a valid as a style to avoid, in terms of readability.
