;;; Commentary:
;; poporg is a small Emacs Lisp project to help editing program strings and
;; comments using Org mode (or any other major mode). This can be useful as it
;; is often more convenient to edit large pieces of text, like Emacs Lisp or
;; Python docstrings, in an org-mode buffer instead of in a comment or a string.
;; See the file located at for
;; detailed usage information.
