Hi (),
This is probably a stupid question, but I can't find anything from google:
Does Perl6 support multiline comments?

Briefly, No and kind of.

Standard Perl 6 comments are just like those in Perl 5. A '#' starts a comment that is terminated by the end of line. But, both Perl 5 and 6 are intended to support the POD system of embedded documentation (for the 'kind of'.) Of course the grammar is planed to be dynamically modifiable so a Perl module could theoriticaly declare it own special multi-line comment system.


So, my question now is will the Perl6 perldoc be extended to allow filters to be run so that these "theoretical multi-line comment systems" will be run before spitting out to STDOUT?
