in thread regular expression (search and destroy)

Text::CSV_XS does handle embedded new lines indeed, you just have to configure your new object properly using the binary option.

I quote from the man page:


    If this attribute is TRUE, you may use binary characters in quoted fields,
    including line feeds, carriage returns and NUL bytes. (The latter must
    be escaped as "0.) By default this feature is off.

I find Text::CSV_XS to be a nice solution, I never had problems once I set up object attributes correctly. Performance wise is ligthing speed, especially using the print and getline methods.

[Lady_Aleena]: Has anyone here ever use pcregrep? I can't seem to get the --include regex right. --include=*.p[lm] works in grep but not pcregrep.
[erix]: to lift your spirits, here is some more happy Randy news...
[Lady_Aleena]: The reason I would like to use pcregrep is because it can do multiline searches supposedly.
[perldigious]: What are your criteria for looking Tanktalus? What things must a job have for you to consider it? And where are you in your career? Start, middle, or end?
[erix]: are there any regex-engines that do not do multiline?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, grep doesn't.
[Lady_Aleena]: Linux grep that is...
[Lady_Aleena]: $ grep --include=*.p[lm] -Ern 'get_(array|hash| data)' does not do multiline search.
[Discipulus]: focus on Perl LA; you can already search multiline patterns
[erix]: grep is a program, not a regex-engine
