Aren't you the guy who's telling the whole world how to write Python and 
Perl? Unusual to find arrogance and humility in such close proximity.

Please stop cross-posting your ill-informed and inflammatory stuff to 
c.l.py and c.l.perl.m. And now I have your attention, the answer to your 
question is ...

     Use triple-quoting.
