Please excuse me if you've seen this before, but for some reason, I didn't
receive this announcement myself, so I'm thinking maybe nobody did, so
the prudent choice is to re-post! 8-}

Speaker: Jonathan Gardner, of Classmates.com
Time: Tuesday, September 17, 2002 7-9pm
Location: SAFECO bldg, Brooklyn St. and NE 45th St.

Title: "Advanced Regular Expressions"
Larry Wall has some pretty neat tricks in store with Perl 6's
Regular Expressions, but Perl 5 regexes are still extremely useful
for all sorts of tasks. If you have a basic understanding of
regexes, come polish up and learn a few more tricks that will make
them even more useful.
Topics to be covered:
- How the engine really works
- Atomic principles
- Decoding regexes
- Back references
- Lookahead and lookbehind
- Nonbacktracking and why
- Damian Conway's Regexp::Common package
- and other horrors of cryptic regular expressions
