Don't you just love regular expressions? It's about as close to English readable as Swahili is.
I was trying to generate a php 'preg_split' line of code that would split a sentence based on both comma and space, but keep the separators. I finally figured out that you must have parentheses in the expression, leaving me with what looks like a set of breasts within the quotes:
preg_split('((,)|( ))', $mydata, -1,
PREG_SPLIT_DELIM_CAPTURE | PREG_SPLIT_NO_EMPTY);
What happened to the person's left nipple? I guess it split.
