Commenting out Multiple Lines

68 New Member
hi,

i wanted to know how to comment multiple lines in a perl program

say in this piece of code.

for ($i=0; $i<5; $i++)
{
print "<tr>
<td width=10%>
<input type=\"text\" name=\"c\" size=9 style=\"border: 0px"></td>
<td width=10%> <input type=\"text\" name=\"CP_CQ_id \" size=9 style=\"border: 0px;\"></td>
</tr>
</table>
";

how do i comment this whole piece of code...
is it the usual way by keeping '#' in front of eavery line...or there is any other way

in C we use something like /*... */, is there something similar in perl

Any kind of help is appriciated

Thanks

Hi Dude,

you can comment multiple lines in perl using the head and cut method.
eg:

...some perl code...
=head
........some perl code to be commented....
=cut

hope this will solve your problem

Hi, I know that this is off topic. but I didn't know where to post. Do you comment your source code while coding or after coding. for example: you write a procedure and after it is working, you'll comment it.

Ctrl+E, C and Ctrl+E, U will comment and uncomment out multiple lines. However, it has two issues: 1. It will not include the // for empty lines, which makes it hard to 'see' that one group is altogether commented out. Since programmers very often use spaces to improve readability, this happens often. 2. It converts tabs into spaces. I...
