in thread More Variable length regex issues

Good gracious thor, you'd think what I am asking for is a crime against humanity. I already said, I want to capture and validate in one pass (of an ARBITRARY length). TWMTODI anyone? I asked in the hope of expanding my knowledge of regex's on the whole..

It's NOT a predisposition against readability, I just need to get this regex working to the point where I can migrate this from one platform to another. Besides, split forces me to iterate, and have logic to know which filter to run on each element of the inbound data..

    You've said it, but you've never said why. If you want to ask a question, don't be shocked by the answer. If you're doing it to learn, fair enough. But realize that most every other programmer would use split for it's succinctness. Moreover, I subscribe to the "every function can be explained by one sentence not using the word 'and'". You are trying to capture and validate. When something breaks, you've more debugging to do as you're trying to do two things at once.
