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?
