in reply to 7 Stages of Regex Users

And let's not forget Stage 0:

Stage 0. VB Programmer

  • Is amazed at the power of VB's InStr function.
  • Likes to show of his VB "guru" (ack, phht!) status by slipping InStrRev in his programs.
  • Is aware the VB's StrComp can be made case-insensitive, but doesn't understand why this is important.
(Ovid hopes that no one realizes that he also likes programming in VB.)

Cheers,
Ovid

[stevieb]: I'll see how to get in touch with someone and advise that there's an issue. Thanks for helping me confiirm pryrt!
[pryrt]: 5.14.2.1-32 also mismatches; but 5.24.1.1-64 matches their sha1
[pryrt]: The mismatched ones have a Jan 23 2017 Last-Modified header -- I wonder if they rezipped them and forgot to update the sha1
