in reply to Poetry in compiling motion

Wow! People did not find this as poetic / funny as I did.

-lpcre -> perl regex's
-Wall -> larry?

No?
I know it is a little stretch of the imagination, but sheesh..

    Perhaps it was not a lack of imagination, but a lack of being impressed.

    Not to say I take either view.

    I know you were just trying to make(1) a joke, but PCRE is not really perl regexes at all (it's from the language who's name I dare not speak)

    @_=qw; ask f00li5h to appear and remain for a moment of pretend better than a lifetime;;s;;@_[map hex,split'',B204316D8C2A4516DE];;y/05/os/&print;

      Huh???, You are wrong mistaken. PCRE is in fact a stand alone project that had nothing to do with the PHPatchwork other than PHP decided to use lpcre since they couldn't find a shell script to do it. PCRE was in fact created as a Perl Compatible Regular Expressions library for C

      pcre.org

        I'll resist the urge to be a pedant, and say that I never mentioned PHP, and skip right on to ++brig for telling me stuff I didn't know.

        I do enjoy a bit of software history...
