in thread Regexp substitution on variable-length ranges with embedded code?

I saw this and was going to reply with something to the effect of Set::IntSpan but I was too late and mine wouldn't have had as clever a trick with that closure coderef . . . bah.

Also as far as the original question, IMHO most times if you're thinking about embedding code inside your regexen you're pretty well already deep into (quasi-apocryphical) JWZ-quote / xkcd 1171 territory.

The cake is a lie.

      I always had an admiration for that cat; solely based on his Netscape exit letter. After reading that roundup I must remark: Anyone who can earnestly write, “Perl is mostly terrible, maybe Java will save us,” cannot be taken seriously.

        I'm sure you mean Jamie Zawinski not "the" Friedl.

        I only admired Friedl so far, but I am now realising Zawinski was behind XEmacs AND bought a night club.

        First law of funny people is that it suddenly becomes irony if it's not funny anymore...
