in thread Regular expression

Please don't confuse the 1 in this example (which indeed is just there for there has to be something there) with the 1; at the end of a perl module!! The 1; statement at the end of a module is truly needed as a returnvalue to the require statement. Substitute it to a 0 and watch the difference. In this example here you could substitue the 1 with a 0, which would change nothing at all...
