Rahul Akolkar updated JEXL-46:
------------------------------

    Fix Version/s: Later

Nice idea, but won't get on the immediate roadmap without tested patches. Hence, setting to
"Later".

> would it be possible to add the perl-like "=~" and "!~" operators to JEXL ?
> to be used like:
> -----------------------------
> str="this is in here";
> if(str =~ 'is\s+in')
> {
>  // true here
> }
> -----------------------------
> or the simple (true) expressions:
> "this is in here" =~ 'is\s+in'
> "this is in here" !~ 'not'
> i know i could use "str.match(pattern)" but for simple users of an application that like
to enter simple expressions "=~" and "!~" would do it without learning java string object
methods.
