( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

That's how I had it originally... and when you've got 23 different possibilities, it adds unnecessary complexity. There's already 23 possibilities wherever I create the regular expressions, but now there's 23 possibilities wherever I use it as well.

Worse is that some of the regular expressions are used multiple places. When I modify a regular expression, I'd like to have it be done in one place (wherever the regexp is created) and not have to worry about it in some other place or places (wherever it's used). As it stands now, I can add new ways to express a date in one place, and it'll automatically -- the routine where I create all my regexps, and it'll automatically go into affect in the various places it might be used.

Not a big problem of course... but I'm a huge fan of Larry's principle of laziness.

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.
