Is there a way to set notepad++ to highlight a Perl multi-line comment block as comments (currently there is no highlighting - it's black on white).

The type of comment I am talking about is of the form:

This is a comment

If there is a more proper Perl multi-line comment syntax, lmk =)

Go to Settings > Style Configurator, then select Perl from the language pane and POD (Plain Old Documentation) from the style pane and change the color there. I just tried this and it works for me.
