OK, maybe my communication style is bad or
somehow 'Perl newsgroup-hardened' ;-)
Of course, I'd like to really understand
these things (as they were intended), probably
modifying my look onto programming concepts then.
Therefore, I'd like to have a usable and understandable
example of Regex-object juggling, that shows clearly
what its real benefit is (or gives an idea of - ).
Afterwards, I'll surely try to deconstruct
your assumptions hidden there in order to
*get a better understanding* for myself ;-)
Regards and thanks
