Re: [davorg] pattern matching

If I may add my comments as a novice Perl coder.

The person that started the thread is most likely even more of a novice than me since they could not figure out even a "long and clumsy" solution like my two solutions.

Seeing a one line command line solution is most likely not going to be a practical solution to a person needing this type of question answered, they will look at it and think "how do I use that in my script?" Its impressive if you look at my answers then look at that nice and compact answer, but if its only offered to make my code look bad then why bother posting it? Anyone can make my code look bad, that is not an accomplishment.

I think what I am saying is you guys up there in the Perl clouds might want to consider the ability of the person asking the question to understand the answer and not post stuff if its just to remind the rest of us hacks how uneducated we are. We already feel dumb enough as it is most of the time asking questions we know others will answer in a second when we may have struggled for a few hours to figure it out.

Anyways, I hate posting this kind of stuff so thats it, flame me or laught at me, ignore me, whatever.
