Parse::Gnaw::Decomment - Used by Parse::Gnaw to decomment debug statements in the code.


Parse::Gnaw is chock full of comments that hide executable code used for debug. This code is commented out with a specific comment string of 8 pound signs (#).

Normally, Parse::Gnaw contains a line that says

        # use Parse::Gnaw::Decomment

i.e. it is commented out.

To enable debugging, uncomment that line and run the script. It will dump huge amounts of debugging text to standard out.

Do not use anything in Parse::Gnaw with an 8 pound (#) comment unless you want it to be uncommented during debug and executed like normal code.
