Parse at all costs

January 24th, 2003

I wrote Magpie to put an end to the legions of PHP “RSS Parsers” that were using regular expressions. Martin put the regular expressions back in by writing a alternate backend using the REX api. Now the regex based parse at all cost (recently rebranded from ultra-liberal) strategy is back. As Eric said recently, “The universe has a very dry sense of humor.”

( Kendall, couldn’t we have renamed it to neo-liberal if we were dropping the ultra-liberal moniker?)
