Padre::Comment(3) Padre Comment Support Library


This module provides objects which represent a logical comment style for a programming language and implements a range of logic to assist in locating, counting, filtering, adding and removing comments in a document.

Initially, however, it only acts as a central storage location for the comment styles of supported mime types.



  my @registered = Padre::Comment->registered;

The "registered" method returns the list of all registered MIME types that have a comment style distinct from their parent supertype.


  my $comment = Padre::Comment->get('application/x-perl');

The "get" method finds a comment for a specific MIME type. This method checks only the specific string and does not follow the superpath of the mime type. For a full powered lookup, use the "find" method.

Returns a Padre::Comment object or "undef" if the mime type does not have a distinct comment string.
