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-}

     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

About the Speaker:
Jonathan Gardner is working at Classmates.com as a perl developer.
He has been programming perl since the summer of 2000, and has
loved every minute of it. He has a degree in Physics from the
University of Washington, and has lived in the Seattle almost
his entire life.
