JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Irregular Expressions

[ #2913 ]
I don't quite get regexes. I know that now.

I started checking output; my problem earlier was one I'd noticed and forgotten...the last line in any file gets crapped for some reason I don't fully comprehend. Now hitting enter one last time before I save; problem fixed.

The test runs I've done so far indicate that changes done on a per-sentence basis will be too homogenous, too odd. Working on operating on individual words now.

Can't wait to see _Blue Velvet_ now; I like Laura Dern too. I didn't know anybody was in the movie except Hopper and someone else I can't remember the name of currently.

Quick Addendum: This doesn't seem like such a terrible idea to me, but then again I don't know if there's some twiddly-bit-style problem with it, or even if it's a desirable thing for the person who'd have to do it. :) Now that I'm thinking about it...what about a use.perl; nodelet at the Monastery?

There's probably already one. I'm off to check.

Today's agenda includes pretty much just the Engrish. I'm going madly through _Bookshelf_, finding anything on regexes I can and going over it, looking for helpful switches and patterns and whatnot. By the end of the day, I should have a much better control over the text mods.

  • Problem on the last line, eh? I wonder if you've got a hidden ^Z at the end. I remember that causing some bizarre behavior back in my Air Force days.

    Try an 'od' to see if there are any hidden characters

    As for Laura Dern, you can also get an eyeful in Wild at Heart. It's also a Lynch flick. Been a long time since I saw it, but I seem to recall enjoying it.
