in thread japhy and mystery

I'd love to see my oft-repeated rant addressed early on:

  • Simple patterns.
    • Plain text: /hello world/, /\Q$str\E/

        - tye (but my friends call me "Tye")
  • Comment on (tye)Re: Learning Perl's Regular Expressions

    I'll be discussing the use of regexes for simple things like /foo/. I'll mention quotemeta() and \Q...\E, of course, and suggest that something like /\Q$str\E/ be rewritten without using a regex.

    I will also discuss the dangers of /$str/.
