;; This code is based on the 18.53 version c-mode.el, with extensive
;; rewriting.  Most of the features of c-mode survived intact.

;; I added a new feature which adds functionality to TAB; it is controlled
;; by the variable perl-tab-to-comment.  With it enabled, TAB does the
;; first thing it can from the following list:  change the indentation;
;; move past leading white space; delete an empty comment; reindent a
;; comment; move to end of line; create an empty comment; tell you that
;; the line ends in a quoted string, or has a # which should be a \#.

;; If your machine is slow, you may want to remove some of the bindings
54
;; to perl-electric-terminator.  I changed the indenting defaults to be

;; The same trick can be used for problem 6 as in:
