    As dakkar said, it IS documemented, but just barely. This same problem has bitten me about once every 2 months for the last two years (since switching to Java 1.5). You'd think I'd learn...

    If only they made matchesAll() and matchesAny() instead of matches().

    • This same problem has bitten me about once every 2 months for the last two years (since switching to Java 1.5).

      I remember this biting me a few years ago when I was doing text parsing and tagging, before Java 1.5. The project I was working on constantly reminded me of this difference from Perl because I actually had to translate the "prototype" code from C-styled Perl to Java for performance reasons (it was never benchmarked, actually). Sigh.
