Regex On Your Tombstone?

Hello Monastery - long time, no see.

As the Brothers here grow old and gray (or grey, I suppose - TMTOWTDI), we must surely be contemplating the eternal.

Leading me to wonder this morning... What's a good regular expression for your tombstone?

Maybe:

die "Normal termination" if /life$/;

Share your best idea!

      Ladies and gentlemen, after due consideration, I believe we have a winner. Bonus points for the ascii art. :-)

        Oh great, many thanks. =)

        I couldn't come up with a shorter regex tho...

        > for the ascii art. :-)

        <table> art, please! ;-)

    $socrates =~ m{I drank what\?};

    Edit: reference for those that might need it.

    Again, not REGEX, but ...

    return bless $self, $class

    s/cavac//g

    Edit: Really a shame that the "e" modifier expects an expression, otherwise i could have used s/cavac//gone. Oh well...

    perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'
      > i could have used s/cavac//gone . Oh well...

      heh! =)

      I tried RIP but the /r is nondestructive and will keep you alive... ;(

      DB<15> $_="cavac" DB<16> s/cavac//rip DB<17> p cavac

      update

      FWIW: I checked for synonyms for "dead", but since "e" is the most common letter in Ænglish ...

        As one author (can't remember who) once said: "Heroes don't die, they just fade away".

        perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

        Hmm, the alternative would be to make the whole thing Terry Pratchett style and make sure the name is bounced around in the protocol overhead forever.

        s/(cavac)/"GNU $1"/

        I actually do something like this in my Net-Clacks IPC for a couple of people.

        perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

    s/.*//m

    Besides the obvious language puns, a golfed Busy Beaver one-liner would be funny and deep. Heck, even the prime finder regex would be interesting. </code>

    Not a regexp but I plan to have "He sure flipped a lot of bits" on mine.


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.
      He sure flipped a lot of bits
      You might as well get a Spoonerism in there too:

      He sure bipped a lot of flits.

    I'm not done yet...

    s/\eLife/\rLife/;

    "Hier liegen meine Gebeine..." =~ /[Ee]\s+\w{2}b(\w+?)(\w)\b/ and die "ich wollt$2, $2s wär$2n d$1$2!"

    Doesn't rhyme much in English: Here lie my bones, I wished it were yo(u)rs.
    Wikipedia thinks it's by this guy.
