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{profanity}

Returns a pattern matching words --- such as Carlin's ``big seven'' --- that are most likely to give offense. Note that correct anatomical terms are deliberately not included in the list.

Under "-keep" (see Regexp::Common):

$1
captures the entire word
 

$RE{profanity}{contextual}

Returns a pattern matching words that are likely to give offense when used in specific contexts, but which also have genuinely non-offensive meanings.

Under "-keep" (see Regexp::Common):

$1
captures the entire word

 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.

 Revision 1.2  2002/08/05 12:16:59  abigail
 Fixed 'Regex::' and 'Rexexp::' typos to 'Regexp::' (Found my Mike Castle).
