in thread Finding repeat sequences.

Right. In fredfr, the ed will be matched by the .* between the repetitions. It corresponds to the missing part of the last repetition. Or am I missing something?

    I am so sorry. You've done the same flip that tye did, capturing the partial rep rather than the complete rep. Threw me completely.

    With a couple of enhancements that works for the 1 rep/1 partial case:

    $s = 'aaaabaaaabaaaaabaaaab';; $s =~ /^((.*).*)\2$/ and print "$1/$2";; aaaabaaaaba/aaaabaaaab

    And still works for that when enhanced to allow for more than 1 complete rep:

    $s =~ /^((.*).*)\1*\2$/ and print "$1/$2";; aaaabaaaaba/aaaabaaaab

    But then fails when given more than one complete rep:

    $s = 'aaaabaaaabaaaaabaaaabaaaaabaaaab';; $s =~ /^((.*).*)\1*\2$/ and print "$1/$2";; aaaabaaaabaaaaabaaaaba/aaaabaaaab

    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
