Re: [vox-tech] Help with regular expressions needed.

Now the previous email is an example of a regular expression not 
behaving as planned.
Or more accurately, the programmer not having planned on it working this 

In my most recent email I gave some sample output that contained my 
shell prompt:

> A sample run (for the last rule):
> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
> tres@ares:~/program/quick$ ./regexp1.pl regexp1.dat 

> ...

> tres@ares:~/program/quick$
> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mozilla 0.9.2 seems to think this is a valid email address becasue of 
the "@" symbol.
If you were on my local network then "tres@ares" would be a valid email 
Mozilla thought that "tres@ares:~/program/quick$" was a valid email address.

BAD MOZILLA!!!        :-(


P.S.    For the Curious /etc/bashrc contains

export PS1="\u@\h:\w\\$ "

'username'@'hostname':'current working directory'    followed by # for 
root or $ for others
