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

One of the new features in perl6 that may be useful for this is a switch for rules (patterns) that tells it to find every way this pattern can match, rather than finding only one match for each possible start position. I'm not sure what it's called this week, but it would mean you could say something like:

"abcd" =~ m:every/^(.*)(.*)$/;
.. and get the five matches that represent the five ways of splitting the string into two parts.

I'd also love to see the pattern matching concept extended from simple strings to data structures, but I don't think anyone yet knows of a good paradigm for expressing the patterns. The only halfway useful approach I know of is expat XPath, and the way it expresses its patterns is ugly as hell.

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