  • Thanks for noting the cultured perl column...I had no idea it existed.
  • ...it contains some confusing information:

    > [inversion lists] ... especially for those who deal with ranges and Unicode.

    Well, you can do ranges and Unicode perfectly well in Perl 5 (or 6, for that matter), without having to know anything about inversion lists.

    Don't get me wrong: inversion lists are a cool data structure, and the article is fine, and the Cultured Perl series is worth following.

    Inversion lists are a neat concept that happens to match the data of Unicode character database rather nicely
    • Heh, I always get grief for the article blurbs.


      Those are written by the IBM editors, and I don't see them until the article is published. Usually they are OK, but (as in this example) they say something that's not... well... exactly the way I would say it :)
