in thread Perl regex to POSIX
Unfortunately, what I said about covers the details; but I will try again.
There is an application which allows users to input regular expressions which are saved and used later for different operations. The input regular expressions are validated by passing them through the qr() method and accepted if they do not throw an error. This has to this point worked fine as the later processing was being performed in Perl code.
I have a requirement that involves moving that same processing into a database model ( Postgres ) and support the existing regular expressions which users have already saved. I thought to convert the existing expressions to POSIX format because Postgres supports that.
Thanks in advance for any help.
