in reply to poll ideas quest 2016

My preferred regex delimiter is:

  • ~ (tilde)
  • # (hash)
  • | (pipe)
  • {} (braces)
  • - (hyphen)
  • . (dot) for obfuscation
  • $ (dollar) because there aren't enough uses for $ in a regex already
  • / (slash) since there's no need to change from the default
  • Other (please specify below)

(Thanks GrandFather for the seed of the idea)

    I sometimes use = and %, as they are visually distinct. I've seen comma used a lot in code. Under utf8, you can even
    "aa" =~ m║a+║;
    
    ($q=q:Sq=~/;[c](.)(.)/;chr(-||-|5+lengthSq)`"S|oS2"`map{chr |+ord }map{substrSq`S_+|`|}3E|-|`7**2-3:)=~y+S|`+$1,++print+eval$q,q,a,
