My goodness. It's a common enough occurance for someone to point to a Perl regexp and say something like "EEEeeeewww!!!". I don't want to imagine what people will say once they see the regexps used to implement backtracking in AI.

    Actually, the only natural backtracking mechanism found in Perl is in regular expressions. Backtracking is what I use to determine primeness of numbers using regular expressions, it's what's used in the Cookbook when regular expressions are used to solve Diophantine equations, and its used in my reduction of 3-CNF-SAT to regular expressions http://perl.plover.com/NPC/NPC-3SAT.html.
