I love that movie. Even though it was made 20+ years pre-me, it still is a good movie.

Anyway, getting to the point: alot of times there has been a need for the use of brackets as subscripts, anonymous arrays, etc instead of them being used as links to nodes. Mostly in this is needed in the chatterbox, because there's the possibility of using <code> tags, which escapes brackets in normal posts.

I don't know much about the Everything engine, but a with a quick glance I found the parser-routine. The following is just a minor alteration, to allow for escaping brackets. I chose the '+' because it has a similiar function distinguishing hashes from blocks (i.e affecting interpretation).

sub parseLinks { my ($text, $NODE) = @_; Everything::printLog("parseLinks"); $text =~ s/(.)*?\[(.*?)\]/linkNodeTitle ($2, $NODE)/egs unless + $1 eq "+"; $text; }

I know I could have just /msg'ed vroom with this, but I'm sure some monks will have something to say about this :).
Then again, maybe not.
