You mean you looked at, even used the RegExps in C# and did not throw up? Man you have a good stomach!

A global match that gives you a data structure five levels deep made of five different types of objects? Replacement that's either a completely static string or a "reference to a function" (for .Net guys "a delegate") that has to be defined somewhere far off because C# doesn't support unnamed functions/blocks? I've seen several examples in C# that implemented something like s{%(\w+)%}{$hash{$1}}g;. None of them was shorter than some twenty lines and each and every one of them was ugly and hard to understand. Shame I don't have the book here.

I think that if I'll continue to be forced to "work" in C# I'll end up wrapping the real Perl regexps in a .Net class whose design might not be so "clean OO", but will be easier to use. Like I did with VB.

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