in reply to 7 Stages of Regex Users

And let's not forget Stage 0:

Stage 0. VB Programmer

  • Is amazed at the power of VB's InStr function.
  • Likes to show of his VB "guru" (ack, phht!) status by slipping InStrRev in his programs.
  • Is aware the VB's StrComp can be made case-insensitive, but doesn't understand why this is important.
(Ovid hopes that no one realizes that he also likes programming in VB.)
