NAME ^

Regexp::Whitespace - Whitespace insensitivity for regexes

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Regexp::Whitespace ();

    my $re = Regexp::Whitespace->new( 'a b c', 'w' );

    "a   b\t\n c" =~ $re; # true

DESCRIPTION ^

    THIS IS A pre-alpha RELEASE.

This module implements a /w modifier for regexes that provides whitespace insensitivity.

  qr/a b c/w    => qr/a\s+b\s+c/

LIMITATIONS SO FAR

  * only supports a global 'w' modifier by now
  * only exact pieces are handled by now
    (which means things like / [ x] /xw are not transformed into
       / (?: \s+ | [x] ) /x

  perlrecharclass (since Perl 5.10)
