Being relatively anonymous allows me to submit the stupid questions that other people are too afraid to ask.

Its a shame its subscription only. Given that it was a press release its probably not copyrighted so hopefully there will be another copy kicking about on the web. Or I'll work out if the 'wonder and delight' is worth the hassle of $x per month.

This is very helpful. Thanks for the speedy reply. I am understanding the first paragraph. But, a bit confused with the second one. Are these two separate techniques? What do you "do an unkeyed hash" of?

revised Documentation often ommits to specify which flavour of regular expression to use, so is there a default flavour that we should all be familiar with?

So, as a php developer (where there's been a choice of pattern for years) I find it weird that the flavour is not specified. But, for most people, there is often no choice within a particular context so its weirder to specify it. Aaaaagh. I geddit now. Cheers for that.

@Craige - well i was just giving examples. Its generally handy to know what the syntax is rather than what its not.
