SPUG: Regular Expression

I've experienced the "fugue" state you mention ... 

Although I have the 1st edition,  I limit my time with the 2nd ed.
to 10 minute forays at the University Book Store :).  As I recall
there's a good explanation of the (?{ code }) construct among other
things. Definitely a good buy  (er, borrow)...

They should send someone to the homes of the borrowers to make sure they
are not head-butting walls in a fugue state. The book is unquestionably
the authoritative work on the subject, and unlikely ever to be equalled,
but has the power to destroy strong minds. I suggest a twenty page per
day limit, and never operate heavy machinery while under the influence
of Mr. Friedl.
