|sontek||like s/search/replace/ finds the first one, I want the 2nd :P|
|jjore||You end up doing it manually.|
You could do something like my $times=0; s/.../ $times++ == 2 ? 'replacement' : $& /ge.
|sontek||ok, thanks :)|
|jjore||Or you could use your pattern to search forward and then s/// from that offset on.|
|revdiablo||I wonder what he was doing anyway|
Nobody considered an XY problem
|jjore||/$rx/ and substr( $_, $+ ) =~ s/$rx/ ... /|
revdiablo: I dunno. I've wanted to do similar things plenty of times that I just considered the plain old idea.
|revdiablo||jjore: I understand, I just wonder if there was a better solution for the problem he had|
jjore: It just seems a little too clever
I'd probably write it out a bit longer but I consider using regexps to find offsets normal fair game.
|revdiablo||Well, it really does depend on the problem|
Sometimes the clever solution really is the best
But it makes me wonder nonetheless
|Randal||that almost rhymes, some of the time|
|revdiablo||Ah yes, I am a master poet|
|Randal||and you know it!|
"stop that now, I really mean it" "anybody want a peanut?" :)
|revdiablo||I was just about to say that! ;)|
IRC comedy is all about being the first to type it
apparently, installing ghc-dev via fink requires building it
that won't be done for six hours, if I recall
Are you sure there aren't another mandatory three or four rebuilding bootstrap steps?
|Randal||yeah, I know|
ghc beats X11 for "time to build"
even gcc doesn't take as long as ghc
watching ghc build is like watching paint dry :)
|cfedde||I wonder what percentage of my career I've spent idling while I wait for some batch operation (like an install or build) to complete.|
|Randal||It can't be more than 10% for me|
but not as small as 2%
|rbrown__||I just spent 15 min waiting for quickfix to build|
|Randal||I know I've had some slow days|
