Does the Source->Validate Syntax (F5) function do anything?
Yes. At least it should.
perhaps I am doing it wrong then. I typed some garbage into my file and hit F5 (and tried selecting from the menu) and nothing happened. I tried hi-lighting the bad text and tried with nothing selected. I also tried selecting the whole file.
What exactly **should** it do? Does it validate perl syntax, POD, what? What should I see if it finds syntax errors?
