Multi-line comments

As soon as you want to leave a comment that is bigger than a single line, you can choose either to have a few single-line comments or a single multi-line comment.

Multi-line comments start with a two-character combination #` and are followed by a pair of enclosing characters ( ), { }, [ ], or < > or their repeated copies: (( )), [[[ ]]], etc.

For example:

my $name;
#`( We are going to ask the user
to enter their name first and then
save the input in a variable. )

$name = prompt 'What is your name? ';
#`{ The program now waits
until the user enters the name
and presses Enter. }

say $name; #`( And now we can print it )
