      Thanks for your efforts. The script is doing what I wanted alright
      but it appears not to know any comment char other than //.

      I named the input file:
      some.conf
      some.rc
      some.bash
      some.pl

      And every case it inserts '//'.

      Finally I opened a real, honest to god, perl script and tried it
      there. And still it inserts '//'

      I wonder if there is a way to make vim tell me what kind of file it
      thinks its editing?

      Or maybe better still a way for me to tell vim what kind of file I
      want it to be editing (temporarily at least)

      My googling keeps getting tangled up with piles of *.vim files,
      echoing $RUNTIME blah blah and so on and so on. Not finding a definitive
      way to choke it out of vim for the current file.

      Just typing :Filetype lets me know:
      filetype detection:ON plugin:ON indent:ON

      But how can I coax vim into telling me what the current filetype is?

      Or barring all that maybe just make the script insert octathorps in
      all cases. At least that would be useful most of the time.
