You should *know* how any code works before you put it in your project.

I'm pretty sure that embedded in that PCRE compatible regular expression to validate an email address is some kind of code that resolves to "HAIL SATAN!"

anandcoral:
 :huh:

Does it really validate an email ?
or is some joke !

WildGem says that's an invalid regex...

First remove the extra new-lines, that'll help a bit, but it doesn't flag invalid an e-mail like [email protected], so it's probably bogus.

Makes me think of those old "obfuscated C" contests.  The challenge with C was to make it readable.  :)  One thing I miss in IDEs is an editor that will scan your code and pretty it up, including block indentation, when you hit a function key.  Like good old DelForEx for Delphi.  Plenty of editors will indent as you go along.  But if I can type one big mess then hit a key to align everything it is so much more fun.  Plus I can think about the code and not worry about the brace matching etc..
