Subject: check for invalid usernames
Download (untitled) / with headers

Hello, There is a line (315 I think): croak "wrong username" unless /^([A-Z]|[a-z]){1}¥w{0,254}/; This ensures that usernames cannot start with a number. I'm not aware of any such restriction (there may be, in which case just let me know), so I'd propose changing that line to: croak "wrong username" unless /^([A-Z]|[a-z]|(0-9){1}¥w{0,254}/; Thanks --hussein

That should read: croak "wrong username" unless /^([A-Z]|[a-z]){1}\w{0,254}/; sorry.
