01:18 patch ashleydev: the main problem i see is that Regexp::Grammars requires recursive regexes introduced in perl 5.10
01:19 patch PCRE also supports it, but python doesn't and i don't think ruby does either
01:19 ashleydev you mean (?<foo> ...)?
01:19 ashleydev or is that just named captures
01:20 patch that's named captures
01:20 patch i've never used recursive regexes myself :)
01:21 patch python developers have stated that they don't think it belongs in their regex syntax
01:26 ashleydev ouch
01:26 patch funny: http://bugs.python.org/msg83993
01:32 ashleydev well regex aren't really built into python though
01:32 ashleydev so it seems conceivable to use pcre in a python module and then build Regexp::Grammars on that
01:34 ashleydev that is funny
01:34 ashleydev their loss
01:34 ashleydev seriously
01:36 patch hmm, i guess many languages do have pcre modules even if it's not the default regex engine
01:37 patch even perl has re::engine::PCRE !
01:37 ashleydev hehe
