.Net has super-hectic regular expression support, but I wasn't aware of this.

.NET has super-hectic support for everything, it seems. (Apart, of course, from VB6, but that horse has been flogged far too much. :D) I must confess that I tend to steer clear of regexes -- they may be small and neat, but they're pretty much incomprehensible. If you take your eye off them for a second you'll never remember where you were!
