Yeah, known problem.. but I think I`ll take it as-is,
it results from the program unleashing the regex, even while
it is not totally finished, it being in an eval won`t crash the
program, but the eval does....

I might have opted for a 'try-it' button after one finishes writing
the regex, but I think part of the strength of this program is that
you can see the different matches/results while you are building/writing
the regex



print "profeth still\n" if /bird|devil/;

    Just swtich off warnings for that section with no warnings; or trap the warning call with $SIG{__WARN__} or redirect STDERR to /dev/null with open STDERR, ">/dev/null";

    I recommend the third. You can redirect to anywhere (say a "log" file) for systems with no /dev/null

    I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
