( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I use regular expressions a lot, and pretty much love the syntax. Except when I hate it, of course...

But I also loved Apocalypse 5 (much more than I did, say, #4). Many moons ago, I wrote a paper titled ``Structured Pattern Matching for Forth'' for Forth Dimensions, and Apoc5's named rules are very similar. (If you must know, the Forth version was much more "atomic", backwards too was it and).

What really struck me upon careful reading was that TheDamian's Parse::RecDescent appears to have been assimilated and eliminated! This is excellent news for anyone who loved the syntax but hated the performance -- Apoc5 ILREs (increasingly-less-regular-expressions) appear totally to subsume the functionality of P::RD.

Which also explains <this syntax>, at least for things like <cut>.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
