in reply to Perl Programmers Don't Die...

I had a buddy in the Marines (US) and he liked to say "Marines don't die, they just go to hell to regroup.", and I tried to figure out which of the options best matched that sentiment. I picked "if they're in an eval", which might not be the best one...

    Funny he'd say that, since the Marine Corps hymn ends with:

    If the army or the navy Ever looked on Heaven's scenes They would find the streets are guarded By United States Marines!

[erix]: are there any regex-engines that do not do multiline?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, grep doesn't.
[Lady_Aleena]: Linux grep that is...
[Lady_Aleena]: $ grep --include=*.p[lm] -Ern 'get_(array|hash| data)' does not do multiline search.
[Discipulus]: focus on Perl LA; you can already search multiline patterns
[erix]: grep is a program, not a regex-engine
[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm 20 years in, and I don't want to move ;)
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, right, it searches files for a pattern. pcregrep is supposed to do the same thing with the addition of being able to search multiline.
[erix]: ah, pcregrep is a stanalone program?
[Lady_Aleena]: erix, yes.
