"so what was exactly the problem?"

Good question. Seems that it's getting forensic.

So what is going on here?

A factual explanation for the non-gods, non private eyes, mere mortals et al. would be helpful.

It would also be helpful to keep in mind that there are non native speakers around here that might miss some presuppositions as well as sarcasm.

Thanks and regards, Karl

      "...Hibb de Bach"

      Even many germans don't know what Hibb de Bach means. That's to much local color.

      Explanation: it's the northern part of the city of Frankfurt in Germany.

      Also please note: i'm not from Dribb de Bach but from Offenbach.

      I hope that helps. Regards, Karl

      Very nice!

      BTW: As the document refers to Goethe i'd like to mention that his famous deathbed cry "Mehr Licht!" (More light) is often misunderstood or misinterpreted.

      In effect it was "Merr lischt so schlecht!".

      Explanation for non-germans: Something was wrong with his bed or he had lumbago.

      Regards, Karl

    Nothing. I made it all up because I'm an attention seeker that contributes nothing here.

[Corion]: erix: Yes, but that's mostly for skipping characters you'll never read, but this approach skips the problem of needing to load more data while looking at a half-match
[Corion]: I mostly wonder how I can add this "reversal" to my toolchest, and if it's worth it or just clever
[choroba]: It should greatly simplify the parsing code, no flags or additional reading of the next buffer needed
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's why I like that approach; it seems even quite obvious in retrospect to me, but many things are in hindsight ;)
