Your Death to Dot Star post is rather convincing!

I like merlyn's comment concerning inching along though. If I really had to write something to parse foo { ... }; I'd probably use that.

What I find really intriguing however is the original question posed however vague. Given a Perl'ish structure of text where you have a symbol followed by a open curly brace followed by more text with possibly more curly braces (open and closed) how do you go about matching the right pair?

My first instinct would be to look towards some sort of recursive parser and not a regex. What are your thoughts?

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.
