"How To Use sed To Remove Text Between '/*'?"

Post #302783671 by alister on Wednesday 20th of March 2013 07:50:33 PM

The following will work with the data sample you provided. However, it will not work with comments that span multiple lines. If you need something more complicated, you might want to look into using a tool that's familiar with the language in question.
Code:
sed 's|/\*[^*]*\*/||g'

Pod::Text::Color(3perl) 				 Perl Programmers Reference Guide				   Pod::Text::Color(3perl)

NAME
Pod::Text::Color - Convert POD data to formatted color ASCII text SYNOPSIS
use Pod::Text::Color; my $parser = Pod::Text::Color->new (sentence => 0, width => 78); # Read POD from STDIN and write to STDOUT. $parser->parse_from_filehandle; # Read POD from file.pod and write to file.txt. $parser->parse_from_file ('file.pod', 'file.txt'); DESCRIPTION
Pod::Text::Color is a simple subclass of Pod::Text that highlights output text using ANSI color escape sequences. Apart from the color, it in all ways functions like Pod::Text. See Pod::Text for details and available options. Term::ANSIColor is used to get colors and therefore must be installed to use this module. BUGS
This is just a basic proof of concept. It should be seriously expanded to support configurable coloration via options passed to the constructor, and pod2text should be taught about those. SEE ALSO
Pod::Text, Pod::Simple The current version of this module is always available from its web site at <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/podlators/>. It is also part of the Perl core distribution as of 5.6.0. AUTHOR
