I think posting is generally better than not posting provided you do so responsibly.

Even I 1 try to:

  • Read the question twice.
  • Read the other answers.
  • Post when I think I'm right.
  • Test my answer to the extent possible.
  • Indicate my confidence in my answer.
  • Update when errors are spotted.

Although you avoided the question of node reputation, I think it is worth mentioning, particularly in light of some of the responses which claim incorrect answers decrease the value of this site. Downvoting incorrect answers and upvoting correct ones helps others.

I think this was an excellent question, by the way.

    Tanktalus is trying to figure out how to get a case-insensitive match between stra▀e and strasse to return true in perl :( fc doesn't seem to do it, either, unless I'm doing it wrong.
    [LanX]: ▀,ss
    [LanX]: nope
    [LanX]: /.*(?:▀|ss).*/
    [hippo]: How are you doing the match? Regex, index, eq or something else?
    [choroba]: fc $s1 eq fc $s2 I guess
    [Tanktalus]: hippo: I don't care, I just want to prove it can match correctly compared to, say, ILIKE / UPPER / LOWER in postgres :)
    [LanX]: is there a unicode convention that ▀ is ss ?
    [Tanktalus]: LanX: yes :) I haven't tried java, but I have this match working in its bastard cousin, C# :) I just thought perl's unicode support would get me there :)
