NAME

Regexp::Common::delimited -- provides a regex for delimited strings

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

Please consult the manual of Regexp::Common for a general description of the works of this interface.

Do not use this module directly, but load it via Regexp::Common.

$RE{delimited}{-delim}{-esc}

Returns a pattern that matches a single-character-delimited substring, with optional internal escaping of the delimiter.

When S is specified, each character in the sequence S is a possible delimiter. There is no default delimiter, so this flag must always be specified.
If S is specified, each character in the sequence S is the delimiter for the corresponding character in the S list. The default escape is backslash.

For example:

Under (See Regexp::Common):
$1
captures the entire match:
$2
captures the opening delimiter (provided only one delimiter was specified):
$3
captures delimited portion of the string (provided only one delimiter was specified):
$4
captures the closing delimiter (provided only one delimiter was specified):

$RE{quoted}{-esc}
