in reply to Zen and the Art of Match Variables

Howdy!

That was most informative! Thanks.

If I am using the match variables, I make a particular point of capturing the values very promptly. Certainly before there is any opportunity for another regex to stomp the values. I work under the assumption that the values are very perishable; if I want to keep them, I need to put them in a safe place promptly.

yours,
Michael
