I'm looking for a regex critic or list of traps or otherwise "(Almost) Never Do This in Regex" lists.
In our $shop we have a static analyzer for several languages, and one thing I noticed is it doesn't catch odd stuff like m/^.*blah.*$/, and other bad practices (it doesn't even try). Perl Critic doesn't seem to do this either.
I don't really need something automated, though that would be nice. A collection of "Bad Programmer" examples would be appreciated.
Any good leads for this? Perhaps a bolt-on module for YAPE::Regex?
