Yes sorry.

I didn't want to over complicate the question, and just wrote .*? between the markup.

Actually I'm using now something like (\S.*?(?<=\S)) to enforce at least one non-whitespace between the markers.

The objective of the question was "How best to allow * / _ to be chained and or nested".

The recursive approach does it already pretty well.

And actually nesting these markups is of rather low priority in the to-do list

That's my project: Wikisyntax for the Monastery =)

JS-regex is mostly compatible to Perl4 regex.

these are some tests I use ATM

sub is_tf { my ($in,$out,$label) = @_; is( rec( $in ) => $out => "$label: \t'$in'\t->\t'$out'" ); } sub no_tf { my ($in,$label) = @_; is_tf($in,$in,$label); } no_tf( '**' => "no letter" ); is_tf( '*A*' => '<b>A</b>' => "one letter"); is_tf( '*A B*' ,'<b>A B</b>' , "multi word"); no_tf( '* A*' , "before non-whitespace"); no_tf( '*A *' , "after non-whitespace"); no_tf( "*A\nB*" , "line break"); is_tf( '*A *B*' ,'<b>A *B</b>' , "after non-whitespace prolonged"); is_tf( '/**/' ,'<i>**</i>' , "nested no letter");

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.
