comment Can regexp be used to check for palindromes?
If you are interested in the more computer sciencey part of the answer, you may want to wander over to CS.SE and look at the questions Palindromes and linear grammars and also Why is the language of even-length non-palindromes context-free?. The key to the CS part of the answer for this question would be the pumping lemma for regular languages

comment Can regexp be used to check for palindromes?
@Snowman he knows. From Apocalypse 5 "This is the Apocalypse on Pattern Matching, generally having to do with what we call "regular expressions", which are only marginally related to real regular expressions. Nevertheless, the term has grown with the capabilities of our pattern matching engines, so I'm not going to try to fight linguistic necessity here. I will, however, generally call them "regexes" (or "regexen", when I'm in an Anglo-Saxon mood)."

comment What is the origin of the negative term “legacy code”
@PeteKirkham thank you - finally got around to updating it to two other references that do have a more clear origin (and poked a bug into Google's feedback system).
