no the fuck it's not. regex people live in another world
@NecroTechno I regret to admit I understood it, but I didn't know about the hyphen. Is there still time to save me, or am I too far gone?
@NecroTechno ok i understood what the regex *does* but the intent is ambiguous. did the author want to match hyphens or every ascii character between , and . ?
But as someone who only begrudgingly interacts with regex and stumbles through using it when I have to instead of just learning the syntax, I was amused by someone referring to the arcane syntax of regex as "clear enough".
@NecroTechno maybe i am just a weirdo but regex only looks hard. I only had to remember like 5-7 things to basically master it. it’s not like needing to memorise 5000 kanji to effectively read and write japanese .
@NecroTechno okay i have read the blog post, and i definitely would have looked up the ascii table if i weren’t lying in bed
