Well, when I said I had to try *it*, I was referring to using a Perl 
compatible regular expression, which you brought up. I guess I should 
have quoted that part. As for what I posted, the crux of it was a single 
regular expression. The Perl code at the bottom was just to point out 
that I didn't type that monstrosity out manually. I was going to put 
that part in brackets but there were already so many.
