No. I reach there by extrapolation from your "It doesn't perform a regular expression match, for one."
You say that, thereby implying that regular expressions are a bad thing.
I just take your words to their logical conclusion. It's called proof by contradiction; or disproof by "Reductio ad absurdum".
If regular expressions are so bad for exception handling; why would they be reliable for anything else?
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
