This is great stuff haukex

I think that using Regexp::Grammars is probably the best solution, however I am getting this YACC feeling over me and think this kind of thing is programming on an entire different level. So currently I am looking at your second approach which I think will offer me the flexibility that I am looking for.

Actually I think this will help me to take this even one step further and build a more advanced configuration which will allow me to specify a filter and formulas to act on parameters. And for this I am thinking in the same lines as LanX (using a cache, separate functionality in functions etc. etc.).

I understand about 95% of the code, but I am still struggling with some of the regex items which are:

  • Why (?:\z|\n) and not just \z when \z is 'up to and including \n'
  • Why \h*\n* and not \s*

Thanks for your elaborate post

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
