(I only understand it about 50% so far...)

Well let me see if I can shed some light.

$ret = $1 if $g =~ /\n\s*\n((?m:^#.*\n)+)$id/;
The first bit is obviously just assigning $1 to $ret if the pattern matches. That's the easy part. Now let's look at the pattern.
/\n\s*\n # This matches your blank line between comments. ( # Capture into $1. (?m: # Don't capture, but match this group as multiline. Wh +ich means match '^' and '$' # at the beginning or end of any line in the string. ^# # Match the comment delimiter at the start of a line. .*\n # Match everything up to, and including, the newline a +t the end of a line. )+ # Match this group one or more times. ) # End of $1 capture. $id # This is the key you're looking for. /x
Very well done. sauoq++

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
