in reply to "regular expressions" need a new name

<tongue_in_cheek>To cite japhy's cool 'invention', I'd vote for sexeger. Who said that sentence about coding would be like sex? If you do it worng it serves no fun. But sexeger is fun, well first was Perl to me, I later discovered regular expressions. So Perl was my first love, and we have the best sex ever together.</tongue_in_cheek>
Well, Abbreviations are always fun :-)

Have a nice day
All decision is left to your taste

    The whole point of sexeger is that it's regexes backwards. I wouldn't want people to keep claiming Perl 6 regexes are backwards from Perl 5. Ewww. Bad meme.
