TIL that the rx macro exists, and I wonder how I lived without it before.


@algernon Honestly I've gotten to the point where I just don't enjoy writing regular expressions without it or something similar anymore.

@ryuslash Yeah, especially elisp regular expressions. I have no problem writing PCRE, but elisp regular expressions always made me angry. Not anymore!

But now I don't want to write any other kind of regexp without an rx-like macro, either. =)


@algernon Thankfully writing or reading regular expressions hasn't ever made me angry.
