Don't use regexp's for the same reason that you shouldn't use them for parsing HTML.

Parse::RecDescent would be a better tool, I think. You might be able to handle the basic syntax that way but what about folks using PDO? It looks superficially like DBI, but... So I doubt you can do that much other than handling very simple cases.

    Greetings, einhverfr.

    Really good points -- especially where PDO's concerned. I hadn't thought about that. :(
    But I'm not totally convinced, where HTML is concerned (yet) :)

    Thanks for the response, einhverfr..
