I think too much junk will be returned that is not perl code, but just
punctuation.  Have to see what happens.

I'm still not sure how to index -- that is, what characters to say are
allowable in words.

I suppose you want more indexed than just the example code blocks, that is,
if $| is in text then it should be indexed, right?
