I'm going to re-enter your RE as though it has the /x modifier so that it's easier to comment on what it's doing... here goes:

/ .* # Match any quantity of any character (or # none at all) ( # group together, and capture. [\$#\%>~] # match any one of the following: $#%>~ | # OR \@\w~\$ # match literal @, a word character, and $ | # OR \\\[\\e\[0m\\\] \[0m # match "\[\e[0m\] [0m" ) # end capturing / grouping. \s? # match a single optional whitespace /x # End regexp.

So you put that all together and you get a regexp that will match a pretty wierd looking string.

The following strings should match (and MANY others too):

"Hi, I'm Dave\[\e[0m\] [0m"



Looks pretty peculiar to me.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
