in thread String expansion script

Of course it shouldn't be too hard with Text::Balanced. I would still be delighted to do it in one single regex. I'm not really sure if this is actually impossible, but for sure it's hard.

I'm puzzled by the possibility of doing it with a single regex and the help of a few pre- and post- transformations. I have a well definite idea of how to do that, but it won't be so easy either... first or later I suspect that my hubris will take over and eventually I'll do it!

Update: I'm not bothered by the fact that this has been downvoted, but I'd be very glad to know why it has... however to show with an example (of a somewhat related problem) what I meant with the above, I refer you to Re: Shuffling cards, but in that case the state of affairs is particularly simple because I can trust input strings which in turn are (guaranteed to be) particularly simple.

[1nickt]: Now that one made me hopeful! First time not angry in a long time when I saw that kid.
[Discipulus]: i propend for removing: why? because we are so few that we must find i minimal common divisor, this is certainly Perl not our (anyway private) thougths. And i say this still wondering because i love a lot freedom of expression. And i say this not for roho
[1nickt]: Discipulus that was the point of my story of taking the sticker off my truck. I know there are lots of people in the world who if I knw their private beliefs I might want to argue with them. And they with me. But life cannot all be arguments!
[1nickt]: This is less than perfect ... but demanding perfection (from people or from life) is a sure way to unhappiness.
[Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
erix eat the rich!
[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
