in thread Having a regex error

I was told NOT to use regexes to parse HTML a number of times but I generally pull through it okay.
Don't mind. Every now and again I do it myself... although I guess I should be supposed not to say so here!! So pssst...
I know some of the / were useless but I had to try to see if I could figure out what's wrong.. Anything in the code that might be the problem for not matching anything?
Hmmm... do you mean \ (a.k.a. backslashes)? Anyway, no: at first sight I don't see anything wrong. But I'm tired, and I suppose that an HTML-extracting module would do better than me!

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
