grok regex option /.by temporal (Pilgrim)
|on Jun 08, 2012 at 14:22 UTC||Need Help??|
temporal has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
This morning I was drinking my coffee and wandering the catacombs of ancient PerlMonks threads. Today's dark, dank corner happened to be Past Polls.
I was zipping down the replies to I resolve to finally grok and use the regex option... and discovered this post: Re: I resolve to finally grok and use the regex option...:
What about /. ?
Nobody who groks /. uses it. They avoid it.
I was curious enough to try it. Syntax Error.
A little difficult to search for (lol). Can anyone shed some light on this enigmatic regex option?
Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K.
