Comment WDL lines with Ctrl+/ in Sublime Text

myourshawmyourshaw University of ColoradoMember

There is a nice WDL syntax highlighter for Sublime Text described on the WDL web site. However, the highlighter does not provide a shortcut for commenting out a line or block of lines. I found that this works well to implement a commenter using the Ctrl+/ keys.
Create the file $HOME/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/wdl.tmPreferences with the following contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
   <string>WDL Comment</string>
            <string># </string>

Don't worry about the reference to Apple Computer; this works fine on a Red Hat box.
