Regular Expressions is your friend
I tell myself this.
Over and over.
I don't believe it... and yet, like Moses on the mountaintop, I may have reached a point where, in the distance, on the horizon, like a spark in a humid haze, I might be able to see that there is, in fact, a place where regex is, indeed, my friend.
And, like a grounded ship feeling a swirl of water under a keel that has for so long known only mud, I am lifted by hope.
Maybe Regular Expressions can be my friend....
(If you have no idea what I'm talking about, count yourself lucky, and forget about it.)
