I don't think the @ sign should be escaped. Furthermore, the regexp does
not automatically bind to the end of a line, therefore you can omit the
final .* . The following should work:
If you want to test regular expressions, there is a program "pcretest"
in the pcre subdirectory which is unfortunately not built during the
"make" process. You can build it by
It will first ask you for a regular expression which you have to
include in //, so type
and then ask for texts to be matched against this expression. End
And yes, a problem with the current implementation of filter files in
leafnode is that any regexp applies to any newsgroup.
