( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If I read it right, there'll be a :p5 modifier to say "interpret this regex according to p5 rules". Quote Larry:

So:
    m:w/ foo\ bar \h* \: (baz)*/ really means (expressed in Perl 5 form):
    m:p5/\s*foo bar[\040\t\p{Zs}]*:\s*(baz)*/
I know which of those forms I'd rather use.

In general, though, I agree with you that it'd be better to convert an entire program at once instead of piecemeal. Unless you lack time and resources....

Update
Larry explicitly says later in the document:

Finally, there's the :p5 modifier, which causes the rest of the regex (or group) to be parsed as a Perl 5 regular expression, including any interpolated strings. (But it still doesn't enable Perl 5's trailing modifiers.)
Should've read more before I typed....

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.
