in thread This looks like someone sneezed and hit the keyboard

I have real trouble with remembering to use whitespace, comments, and /x in my regexs. I just don't have the habit (yet!) while writing code. Almost all the /x's that end up in my code are added after-the-fact. I'm almost ready to decide just to put an /x on all regexes (to help develop the habit), but I know that will get me strange looks.

    My regexes tend to be very basic, so, like you I don't use /x much. It would look crazy if used everywhere. However, this example is pretty ugly and needs it just for maintaince purposes. We are lucky some folks remember what ANSI escape sequences look like, as someone who didn't use ANSI codes wouldn't have a clue.
