my regex foo is weak

2007-08-24 @ 21:42#

as part of my next series of updates to the exyus framework, i'm working on integrating more regex into the system. right now i use regex to filter URLs and do some global replacements. that works fine. but now i need to step it up to the next level.

and my regex foo really stinks!

i've been pouring over the o'reilly book i own (quite good) and making headway, but i still mad seriously lacking. it's seems to me that regex is one big binary tree exercise. and i stink that them, too! anyway, i need some big-time help/coaching/study, etc. on regex in general. if anyone out there has some pointer, feel free to pass them on.

in the meantime, i think i'm going to slow down on my regex integration project until i 'cowboy up' a bit more on the tech.

i downloaded the trial version of Regex Buddy. very nice! so nice, i ordered a download license right away. and the site failed when i tried to download - *crap*! i also found steven levithan's blog. he's got some *serious* regex foo!
