belg4mit kicks Perl in the shins, "Unmatched ) in regex; marked by" my ass
[belg4mit]: Nothing wrong with perl -le 'print ":)" =~ /(?^u:^(\:|\:\))$) /'
[Lotus1]: belg4mit are you on a Linix server?
[belg4mit]: yes. the regular expression is generated in code from a text file. that s the regular expression that Perl blows up when it reaches it, but if I use it from the comman line it's fine
[belg4mit]: oh, wait, damn, different lne number
[choroba]: same Perl version?
[choroba]: oh, ok
[belg4mit]: I had \Q'd in one RE but not a subsequent one, doh
