document.write('"hello Fred\'s world"');
works fine as does the excessively complex '"hello \"Fred\'s world\" "'

This means that you can safely do a s(["'])/\$1/g server side thingy and all is OK. You can also do most perl regexen in javascript. However there is a bug in IE that means that string.split(/(?:a|b)/) causes the JS engine to stop - although string.split(/(a|b)/) does work ok. On the other hand in Mozilla string.split(/(a|b)/) crashes the browser - this is a known bug and may be fixed in 1.2 - which makes cross-browser support somewhat problematical! However the example below works fine

ss = ", (?:\S+\. )*"; sre = (document.all)?/, (\S+\. )*/:new RegExp(", (?:\\S+\\. )*"); // later on a = data.split(sre );
update The mozilla bug is 163323

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
