This question didn't get automatic syntax highlighting for the Perl code, although it is tagged .
Manually adding <-- language: lang-perl --> to my answer worked (and I could have done that to the question - left as is for illustration purposes).

Could the tag be updated so that automatic language syntax highlighting kicks in? (Or am I missing something in how that post was formatted that prevented this?)

Done; all questions will syntax-highlight as perl now. Prettify is supposed to detect the language by default, but maybe that code block was too short for it to figure it out
