Ubique quo regex et gloria ducunt

Consider a regex for every occasion!

Almost, I would translate it as: Everywhere the regex and Gloria leads us

(Gloria is Larry Wall's wife)

The originals were "Regis Ultima Ratio" (The King's last argument) and "Ubique quo fas et gloria ducunt" (Everywhere Fate and Glory lead us), which are the mottoes of resp. the Belgian and English Artillery.

And before anyone complains: yes it probably should be "regegis ultima ratio" and not "regex ultima ratio", but that doesn't sound as nice.


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
