Reverse engineering regular expressionsby paulski (Beadle)
|on Aug 01, 2005 at 00:53 UTC||Need Help??|
paulski has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've got a problem I'm hoping someone's already solved or someone can point me in the direction of some possible solutions.
I need to write some PERL code that will reverse engineer a PERL regexp. That is, given a regular expression:
The code will generate a string that will match this regular expression.
e.g. code might generate the string.
"This is a test."
Has anyone looked at this type of thing before?
