@AlexisKing YOU READ ALL OF IT???!
 
@tchrist ...yes? Is that weird?
 
It demonstrates a lot of stamina.
Or determination.
 
It's a great answer! I upvoted it. :)

I found it fascinating, tbh, despite not having a great grasp of Perl.
 
Well thank you.
 
This I think was what I found the oddest, really:
> Code that believes that stuff like /s/i can only match "S" or "s" is broken and wrong. You’d be surprised.
What?

@AlexisKing Plenty of the issues are simply Unicode, not Perl, so would be issues anywhere.

@James Blacklisted user and registered question as true positive: added title to the Bayesian doctype 'bad'.
 
@tchrist Yes, I found it relatively language-agnostic aside from the things that are related to Perl-specific syntax.

I wonder if that holds true in other languages' regexes.

@tchrist I just tried /s/i.exec("ſ"), which is null, so JS doesn't have that behavior.
Of course, regex engines are all unspecified and undocumented, sooo...
 
@AlexisKing It is part of The Rules. In Java you need the UNICODE_CASE pattern compilation flag in conjunction with the case insensitive one. Or embed "(?u)".
 
I guess ECMAScript's engine is probably one of the better-specified ones.
 
@pizza gone
 
@AlexisKing Javascript's regexes are simply unusable for Unicode. They do not even try. UTS#18 is the compliance doc.
 
5:41 AM
@tchrist Yep, just stumbled upon something discussing how ES6 will have unicode-compliant regexes, but ES5 does not.
 
There are four cases in Unicode if you count fold case, which is needed for casefolded matching.
But fc is an internal thing. Mostly there are just the three: lc, tc, uc.
 
@tchrist Unicode is quite a beast. I'm glad I don't need to deal with 99% of these oddities since I do relatively little string manipulation, so I just need to store inputs in a DB and get them back out the same as I put them in.

@SmokeDetector tpu
 
@bummi Blacklisted user and registered question as true positive: added title to the Bayesian doctype 'bad'.
 
@AlexisKing Well it affects collation.
And that requires fc. Minimally. Maybe UCA.
 
@tchrist Yeah, but I don't have to write the collation algorithms. :)
 
Databases get mojibaked a million times a second.
 
The whole issue of normalization is also painful.
 
@tchrist Sounds like people are using terrible databases.
 
 
People forget to normalize.
 
When do you really need to normalize?
 
5:49 AM
@AlexisKing It's the front ends, mostly.
 
@tchrist Okay. Sounds like people are writing bad code. Also, the sky is blue and fish swim. ;)
 
@AlexisKing Two Unicode strings are considered the same if they have the same normalization form.
You have to normalize to do lookups.

@bummi Blacklisted user and registered question as true positive: added title to the Bayesian doctype 'bad'.
 
5:51 AM
@tchrist I guess I'm just unsure when I'd really need to do lookups on Unicode. I guess searching, but I never actually roll my own search algorithm at its core.
I find anything I try to write ends up sucking, anyway.
 
You never compare two strings?
 
@tchrist String comparison is code smell? ;P No, but seriously, when do you need to do that? Logging in? Not going to be doing normalization on username or password.
 
Oops.
 
Is... is that bad? D:
 
You really should you know.
 
5:53 AM
Why?
 
Otherwise logging in from two different boxes can send different forms for the same string.
 
Ah, that makes sense.
This is why you should be glad I've never written any large user account management software. :P
All of the times I've tried to roll my own auth have been for tiny, personal projects.
 
I've just been having to deal with this.
 
Otherwise I just use OpenID or something.
 
This is closed stuff. Government.
 
5:57 AM
@tchrist My condolences.
 
user259867
Does "government" involve supporting IE7 on WinXP?

@pizza No.
Nor IE8.
 
Are any of you familiar with the Los Angeles Unified School District, aka LAUSD? They've been in the news for their idiotic "let's buy students iPads" program.
 
user259867
Not necessarily idiotic. Surely someone got a nice kickback.
 
Mommy how come the furnace gets an iPad but I don't?
 
5:59 AM
Okay. Depends on your point of view, I guess. :P Anyway. Well, apparently, they supposedly still employ some COBOL programmers. I found out about this through... erm, connections.

@PatrickHofman After the Tavern effect:
I don't get it, why this request is getting so many downvotes and is even put on hold now. This is a quite common error when concatenating SQL strings in some programming languages, so the question and its answers may very well help someone with the same problem. (Tagging this with the programming language in question would have been appropriate though.) — Thorsten Kettner 14 mins ago
 
@InfiniteRecursion He should know better...
 
I agree. (11k+ user)
 
I suggest him to actually read the close reason. Can't be that hard.
 
@ThorstenKettner Just because this may be a common problem doesn't exempt it from moderation. It gets its treatment as a low quality question because it is a low quality question. — Unihedro 8 secs ago
