01:45 ronsavage I'm after a regexp which recognizes Perl module names. Any ideas?
01:45 lucs How off is  \w+(?:::\w+)*  ?

01:47 Topic for #marpa is now IRC logs: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/marpa/today - Pastebin: http://scsys.co.uk:8002/marpa - Released code: https://metacpan.org/pod/Marpa::R2 - Source code: https://github.com/jeffreykegler/Marpa--R2 - Mailing list: https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en​&fromgroups#%21forum/marpa-parser - Web site: http://jeffreykegler.github.io/Marpa-web-site/
01:48 ronsavage It's probably perfect in isolation. But I am using /^((?:\w+(?:::\w+)*)|[^:]+)(.*)$/) since I have to allow for things like A:P:C (want A) and A!A (want A!A but get A)
01:49 ronsavage Ahhh I hate emoticons at time. That was - with spaces  - A : P : C (want A)
01:50 lucs I don't get it. Are those valid module names?
01:51 lucs And if so (even if not), I wonder if  Foo'Bar  is still valid.
01:51 ronsavage No. I'm dealing with Graphviz node names, some of which are Perl module names. And any node name can be optionally followed by :x or :x:y
01:51 lucs Ah, I see.
01:52 ronsavage I'd better try splitting at : not followed by :
01:57 lucs Nor preceded by, eh :)
01:58 lucs I never remember the syntax for lookahead/behind, but it should do it.

02:47 jdurand Re http://irclog.perlgeek.de/​marpa/2014-08-07#i_9150733 - Visual Studio is free of charge with the express edition, I use version 2010 successfully on one of my personal laptops - together with perl, this mean I have both gcc and cl on the same machine, as native win32 binaries - in addition I use GnuWin32 tools for handy things like "file," "which", "tar", "gzip" etc... I explicitely avoid cygwin as much as possible
02:52 jdurand (in case of gcc, this mean with the help of mingw - still this is not cygwin)

20:43 jeffreykegler From the Kollos point of view, it's best to think of Lua not as a language,
20:44 jeffreykegler but as a C programmer's toolkit library, which comes with a small DSL which happens to be both Turing-complete and even useable on its own, in a pinch.
