Bug Information
Severity: Normal

Fixed in: (no value)

Subject: regex in comments
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 775b
Given these two source files ------ ------------- package myfilter; use Filter::Simple; FILTER_ONLY quotelike => sub { print "[$_]\n"; }; ------ ---------- use myfilter; # my $x = "asdf"; print $Filter::Simple::VERSION . ' ' . $Text::Balanced::VERSION; -------------------------------- the following output is generated upon running (under Perl 5.8.0/WinXP with the latest relavent modules): -------------------------------- [//xsgi] ["asdf"] [' '] 0.79 1.95 -------------------------------- So, the URL inside the Perl comment is being interpreted as a regex. This error was noticed when using Filter::Simple for the (atypical?) purpose of extracting all string literals from a Perl source file.
