Extended Rules to support Modern Perl in Atom symbols-view package

Somehow long ago I wrote some additional rules for Perl in my .ctags file and published it. I even invited you to help improve and polish it or simply use it and modify it as you wish.

Recently I tried the Atom editor which is very trendy now.
I was happy to find it uses Exuberant Ctags and the rules in my ~/.ctags file just worked.
Then I just made a pull request to https://github.com/atom/symbols-view. The pull request got finally accepted and the extended support for Perl is available since version 0.65.0.

Exuberant Ctags
can be used with Vim, jEdit, Sublime Text, Ultra Edit... any IDE/Text Editor that uses it natively or has a plugin for it. I use it to quickly jump around in my Ado project.

Keymaps: ctrl/cmd+r to see current file symbols; shift+ctrl/cmd+r for project symbols.

Enjoy it, modify it as you wish and improve it.
