( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I think it should look something like this?
No, I think not, for exactly the reasons I stated. But if you're convinced you're right, by all means, use your regex. It's not my program after all.
I can't really understand what the '.)*' means after the throw?
It doesn't make any sense at all. It's like asking what the "nd wh" in your question means. A dot means "match any character", and a star means "match the preceeding unit one or more times", but the closing parenthesis is belongs to the matching opening one.

However, if you don't understand the most basic regexp tokens, I urge you to first learn basic regexes, before continuing asking questions.

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.
