Regexen fer shure dude!

I was a lowly Oracle DBA and report sql writer for the soon to become Data Warehouse group, and I was asked to make a change to an existing perl script, to fine tune a regex that wasn't working anymore. I was picked because no one else had any perl experience, and I was interested in learning new things, and I had good ksh experience.

I must admit, it wasn't love at first sight; and I didn't do much with it; but after being laid off and moving to a job with very little to do; I found a home at perlmonks.

Thanks all you perl monks and mongers!
