Regex pattern objects are magical. Overloading doesn't even come into play.

Magical is right. This took me by surprise.

use overload; use Scalar::Util qw( blessed ); use Test::More 'tests' => 4; my $rx = qr/a/; ok blessed $rx, 'Regexp is blessed'; ok ! overload::Overloaded( $rx ), 'Regexp is overloaded'; ok ! overload::Method( $rx, q{""} ), 'Regexp has q{""} overloaded'; isnt "$rx", overload::StrVal( $rx ), 'StrVal of regexp isnt regexp stringified';

    I'm confused shouldn't it say "is not" and "has not"?

    Cheers Rolf

      You're right. I originally wrote the descriptions to match the tests, and then I was surprised when I ran them (they failed). After that, I reversed the tests and forgot to rephrase the descriptions.

[1nickt]: Corion this looks good, from the pod: "there are 9000+ variations that are detected correctly in the test files (see t/data/* for most of them). If you can think of any that I do not cover, please let me know."
[TCLion]: some moron put the date like this : Mon Feb 20 09:31:30 2017
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yes, the module sounds promising indeed
[1nickt]: "putting the date in correct order" how?
[Corion]: TCLion: Whee ;)
[TCLion]: need to put like this : 2017-02-20 09:30:53
[1nickt]: That's why I asked if you are using DateTime. It has a large number of supporting modules (the author likes the term 'eco-system') so if you are already creating a DateTime obj from your dates, this module would read in the mnoron-formatted 1s seamlessly
[TCLion]: when I put the date together it looks like : 2017-Feb-24 (month is the problem)
[1nickt]: good luck, then.
[TCLion]: looking at DateTime documentation in monastery now
