Ah yes... \Q and \E. I'll be honest, I'm not nearly crafty enough with regular expressions to have thought of that. As far as my perling goes, it has been rather surprisingly devoid of regular expressions. I've probably written 20-30k lines of perl code in my life, and alltogether, I've probably written 50 regular expressions in my code. Ah well, that's what we have maverick for :)

I am however curious about the /o modifier on the re. I mean, if we know the "event" that the user is looking for, what is the reason for *not* using it? After all, as the code has been specified, it's a non-mutable trigger... is it simply an issue of pre-emptive maintenance coding headache prevention? I don't think I know tye nearly well enough to just badger him needlessly when I have you to thwack about :)

Title:
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.
