regular expression fun

when i first learned about regular expressions, i thought they were pretty neat. it was back in college in one of my computer science classes where the language used in the class was perl. this is the class that started my love affair with perl and regular expressions.

i immediately saw the beauty of regular expressions and i started to use perl extensively to leverage the power of regexes.

i think the cool thing about regexes is that they are like little puzzles that you are trying to figure out. but right now, there’s this one regex i’m working on that it totally kicking my ass. it isn’t pretty. every time i think that i’m getting close, it just comes back and takes me out for another round of (head|heart)ache.

but, worry not, i will get you. die, regex, die!
