Capturing subexpressions: at once stage we had an experimental product that (in block mode only, not streaming) could accurately model libpcre’s capturing semantics. This worked by scanning the data backwards with a backwards version of the pattern, making a trace of the states visited, and tracing forwards through the backward state trace in order to […]

The design system carries the burden of the boring, so that designers and developers don’t have to. Instead of designing a card pattern for the 15th time, it’s already done.

This is a scary test.
No illusions please: This bill will not be repealed.
