in reply to Regex question

What I would do is set the default value first, then try the match. Something like this:

$match = "chiapet"; # default value if ($string =~ /foobar(...)/) { # probably want to capture something +here $match = $1; }

Or the ternary ?: operator, like this:

$match = ($string =~ /foobar(...)/) ? $1 : "chiapet";

[Corion]: Hmm - is anybody aware of a "protocol-only" HTTP module? I'd like to teach Prima non-blocking HTTP ideally without using threads, but that means reimplementing/ rewriting something like HTTP::Tiny (except asynchronous) or AnyEvent::HTTP
[Corion]: Ideally, the HTTP state machine but with a way to feed it HTTP data whenever I get it instead of it actively doing stuff.
[Corion]: Now that I talk about this, maybe Net::Inspect::L7:: HTTP would be the right kind of thing for the responses at least.
