NAME

Regexp::Common::lingua -- provide regexes for language related stuff.  

SYNOPSIS

        /^$RE{lingua}{palindrome}$/    and  print "is a palindrome\n";
    }

 

DESCRIPTION

Please consult the manual of Regexp::Common for a general description of the works of this interface.

Do not use this module directly, but load it via Regexp::Common.  

$RE{lingua}{palindrome}

Returns a pattern that recognizes a palindrome, a string that is the same if you reverse it. By default, it only matches strings consisting of letters, but this can be changed using the "{-chars}" option. This option takes a character class (default is "[A-Za-z]") as argument.

If "{-keep}" is used, only $1 will be set, and set to the entire match.

This pattern requires at least perl 5.6.0.

 Revision 2.100  2003/01/21 23:19:40  abigail
 The whole world understands RCS/CVS version numbers, that 1.9 is an
 older version than 1.10. Except CPAN. Curse the idiot(s) who think
 that version numbers are floats (in which universe do floats have
 more than one decimal dot?).
 Everything is bumped to version 2.100 because CPAN couldn't deal
 with the fact one file had version 1.10.
