Subject Re: [users@httpd] PCRE issue with Apache 2.0.54 (Debian)
Date Sun, 14 May 2006 13:36:51 GMT
Krist: No, I had already tried that with go.

William: "^/!(foo)" doesn't match at all, letting everything through.

I'm going to stick with "^/($|[^f][^o][^o]($|/))" for now. That won't 
work if we had paths that are less than 3 characters and not followed by 
a slash, but we don't.

But I'm certain that it is using the old egrep-style regexes rather than 
PCRE. Maybe I should file a bug with the Debian folks, since this is 
just a standard Debian package installation. Anyone else using the 
Debian package for whom PCRE is working fine?
