That regex looks a little greedy. How about: s/(.)\[([^]]*?)\]]/linkNodeTitle ($2, $NODE)/egs unless $1 eq '+';
Could be a little faster with the character class in there, too. It's certainly uglier!

    It sure is! :)

    One thing though:
    s/(.)?\[([^]]*?)\]]/linkNodeTitle($2, $NODE)/egs unless $1 eq '+';
    (just the (.)? has changed), so it'll allow node-links at the beginning of the node (i.e. without a character in front of it). Or am I wrong in assuming '.' won't match a null-character? Anyways, I can't remember why I did (.)*?, but in retrospect it's wrong. Thanks.
