Subject flood reg ex matching problems
Date Thu, 21 Feb 2008 09:44:26 GMT
Hi folks,

I grabbed flood from svn and built it according to the instructions at

I've been getting 'Regular expression match failed' most of the time, 
and even tried running one of the examples:

root@bella:/home/staff/john/flood# /usr/local/flood/bin/flood 
Regular expression match failed (<a href="([^"]*)">FAQ</a>)
postprocessing failed (
Error running farmer 'Joe': Internal error.

I even tried a ridiculously simple one and it still failed:
    <url responsetemplate="(DOCTYPE)" 

I've even tried updating my pcre version (v3 was installed on this 
Ubuntu system) to no avail - it looks as though theres a version 
compiled in statically anyway (I'm using --disable-shared as per the 
doc, not sure if it has any effect on pcre).

I've had some simple regex's working - eg. if I try 
responsetemplate="href=&quot;([^&quot;]+)&quot;" it sometimes works.

Any ideas?

thanks in advance,
John O'Rourke
