    Allow me to rephrase that...

    Regular expressions are:

    • A sign that God exists
    • What you need
    • What makes Perl so strong
    • Ergo, they think
    • A sure way to get shot in the foot
    • Line noise
    • An abomination of nature

      This needs an “all of the above” option.

      • A tool that turns one problem into two problems

      ... to paraphrase an old regex joke.

        [REGEX] A tool that turns one problem into two problems

        which can be a very effective technique, as divide & conquer demonstrates :).
