In some ways, programming is like parenting.

If done really well, you're no longer responsible for it, it goes off on it's own, and makes you proud of it.

Sadly, sometimes you outlive your child.

    I should've also said that the creation of the offspring can be very pleasurable, while the delivery is quite painful...

    And sometimes, no matter how well you try to raise your child, they do something bad when you least expect it. ;)

[Discipulus]: good morning Corion!
[Corion]: I spent parts of yesterday digging into Filter::Simple to make it not change the line numbers of unfiltered code, but I think I need regex help (which will come in a SoPW I guess). I tried @lines = /((?:"...."|[^" \n]+)\n)/gs, but that matched on...
[Corion]: ... foo "\0\0\0\n" bar\n by matching the first \n instead of matching the four-bytes-in- double-quotes part
[Corion]: ... and I still don't understand why ;)
[Corion]: This is because Filter::Simple does some string-trickery, replacing all string literals with "quoted packed numbers"
[Corion]: I fear this might be a bug in the RE engine, but if it is a bug, even fixing won't help me because I need Filter::Simple for Filter::signatures , which provides signatures as a backwards compatibility feature for Perl <5.22 - and these ...
[Corion]: ... won't get a fix anyway ;) My plan B is to encode the string placeholders avoiding \r and \n
