In Uninitialized Value $` in Perl, I want to format as code several Perl variables.
- If I have one $`, there isn't a problem because the paragraph doesn't have another backtick.
- If I double up the back ticks, ``$```, there's a problem because the one I want to quote is next to the terminating ones.
- I don't see that escaping it works, `$``.
- The problem is that in the paragraph I want other code formatting, so ``$```, which didn't work before, does new things when more backticks show up, like
I looked at How can the backtick character ` be included in code?, but that doesn't have an example of the back tick at the end of the code. That advice works if
this has a ` in the middle.
I saw Syntax highlighter doesn't handle unpaired backticks, but that's about the big code sections and I'm not having a problem with syntax highlighting.
I also tried HTML tags around the variable, and I put this one at the end so it doesn't mess up everything after it:
- I can't use HTML tags because the backtick in the variable name starts formatting things when there are later back ticks:
I could put HTML tags around every code bit in the paragraph, but that's annoying.
Maybe this is another reason no one should use $` in Perl. :)
