Re: [vox-tech] some excercise for you linux geek.



heh.  while i was sending off an email to someone, you got the drop on me.
dang, micah, you know your regex's!   :)


here's one for you.  considering some of the ones you answered, this should
be trivial.  what do we commonly call:


                ^\(.\)\(.\)\(.\)\(.\)\(.\)\5\4\3\2\1$

i think most people would call this the same thing...

                ^\(.\)\(.\)\(.\)\(.\)\(.\).\5\4\3\2\1$

there's a much harder part 2.

these examples are hardcoded for a certain length of word.  using only regex,
is it possible to express these types of words of arbitrary length?  (i don't
know the answer).
