in reply to POE::Filter::Line InputRegexp Help Requested

james2vegas++ Thanks for the pointer. Using AnyEvent::Handle looks like it would give me lots of possibilities, particularly if I wanted to chase down Message 6 in some way. That's a bit beyond my current scope right now, but it's a definite candidate for the evolution path.

bingos++ It's good grounding to reinforce what POE::Filter::Line was designed to do. I sort of scooched beyond that by utilizing InputRegexp to do simple message parsing. It seems to work well for what I want, but I'm confused about why some of the regexp's don't work as I expect them to...

One specific thing that is particularly confusing to me is why using either of the following two lines give different results.

InputRegexp=>"\n(\\*\\*\\*)|(\\+\\+\\+)\\s+", InputRegexp=>"\n(\\+\\+\\+)|(\\*\\*\\*)\\s+",
Now granted, my regexp brain cells still need work, but shouldn't I be getting the same results using either? Maybe I'm I not using this correctly?

Thanks

-Craig
