Thanks for pointing that out Hugo.
I'm currently trying to extend it so that for the line
/* sdfthrow OtherException
prints 'Opening extended comment'
but does not for the line
throw new Exception() /* asdfasdf
Basically so long as the '/*' hasn't been preceeded with
a throw then it should print out opening the comment.
I've got the following expression in place.
if ($line =~ /^.*\/\*((?:(?<!throw)).*$/ )
debug("Opening extended comment");
Is my understanding this expression correct? Would folks mind if I explain what I think is going on from left-right?
/^ matches the start of the $line string
.* says that the start can be proceeded by any number of characters
\/\* matches the '/*' string
(?:(?<!throw)) means so long as /* isn't preceeded in the string by the word throw $line still matches
.*$ means that any number of characters can proceed the /* upto the end of the line
My understanding's obviously incorrect cos eh.. it don't work for a lad.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
