Thanks for looking into and fixing that. One quibble: those long comments are probably more trouble than they're worth. I found that they got in the way of my understanding the code, as my eyes glazed over when reading them. And when I finally forced myself to read one, I found that at least one important detail was missing: the "#! -*-perl-*-" line is not just there for Emacs, but is also there for Perl.

Instead of adding even more length to a comment that is already a bit of an obstacle to understanding the code, I suggest we just cite perlrun's man page as in the attached proposed patch. This should be good enough for anyone who's not already versed in perl+sh.
