    So, you have Javascript comment.

    Is there a point you are trying to make?

      Yes, but my "point" is cautiously hidden in the code.

      Try running pod2text or pod2html on it to reveal the secret message! ;-)

      Cheers Rolf

        In my first message in this thread, I wrote:
        Because POD parsers actually don't parse POD. They parse anything between ^=\w and ^=cut, without looking at context, assuming to capture all the POD (and nothing but the POD).
        Do your contributions contradict that, or somehow add additional insight?

        Really, I fail to understand what point you're trying to make.

        My point is, "POD parsers are stupid, they don't know context", and all you've done so far is add more examples of this.
