in reply to Understanding Split and Join

I'd put more emphasis on the fact that the first argument to split is always, always, always a regular expression (except for the one special case where it isn't :-). Too often do I see people write code like this:

@stuff = split "|", $string; # or worse ... $delim = "|"; @stuff = split $delim, $string;
And expect it to split on the pipe symbol because they have fooled themselves into thinking that the first argument is somehow interpreted as a string rather than a regular expression.

[Eily]: and since his name is a modified version of astérisque (asterisk), which is a typographical symbol, I think it's even funnier that he would lose a diacritic
[Eily]: the pun doesn't work so well with "he lost a diacritic" though :P
[LanX]: Obelix might offer to find it again ...
[LanX]: not much to translate anyway since Goscinny died
[Eily]: https://en. wikipedia.org/ wiki/List_of_Aster ix_characters some of the names were changed to include a new pun
[LanX]: sure some are even funnier now
[LanX]: some lost because they were not translated like Epidemais
[LanX]: some of the english names are funny too
