This might be changed in the futu +re. =item * There is no statement to express a 'cut'. =item * If you have the C<Filter> package installed, you can C<use Backtracking 'filter'> to turn something like: goal goal1 { ... }; into goal 'goal1' => sub { .... }; using the following regex: s/\bgoal([\r\n\s]+)(\w+)([\r\n\s]*\{)/Backtracking::goal $1 '$2' = +> sub $3/g This might mismatch sometimes. =back =head1 SEE ALSO L<Filter::Util::Call>, L<Filter::Simple> =head1 AUTHOR Joost Diepenmaat - joost@hortus-mechanicus.net
