My Camel II certainly has an index entry for regular expressions. I can check the pink Camel when I get home tonight, but I've always been happy with ORA indices. I've occasionally wished for an index in the pocket refs, though.

    My Camel II certainly has an index entry for regular expressions.

    I'm sure it has. My claim was about early prints of the third edition. Currently, I have 2 prints of the third edition.

    From the index of the July 2000 print, page 1053, first column:

    reftype function, 317 regex (see patterns) regexes (see patterns) regexps (see patterns) registry (Microsoft Windows), manipulating, 398, 875 regular files, testing for, 28 re-initialization expressions, loops, 116

    From the index of the March 2001 print, page 1054, first column:

    reftype function (attributes pragma), 317 regexes (see patterns) regexps (see patterns) registry (Microsoft Windows) manipulating, 398, 551, 875 .pl extensions and, 490 regular expressions (see patterns) regular files, testing for, 28

      My bad; I was reading on insufficient coffee and misparsed the antecedent. Thanks for the excerpt -- though it does appear that one could still find the information fairly easily, since there are entries for "regex", "regexes", and "regexps". No excuse for omitting "regular expressions", of course, but it's not as bad as omitting the concept entirely.
