Dare Obasanjo’s article on MSDN shows you how to add Regular Expressions to your XSLT transforms. [Via Sam] Just in case you want to increase your job security by writing code that causes people’s heads to explode just by looking at it.
John Beimler writes "I’d like to wire in a Bayesian classifier too, and
see if that helps me get the items I like to the top [of my news
Yes. That’s a good idea.
"…I came up with three primary classifications for thinking about
the UML: UmlAsSketch <http://martinfowler.com/bliki/UmlAsSketch.html> ,
UmlAsBlueprint <http://martinfowler.com/bliki/UmlAsBlueprint.html> , and
<http://martinfowler.com/bliki/UmlAsProgrammingLanguage.html> ….one of the problems that I, and some others, are having with UML 2 is because there are many changes that have been introduced to increase its precision – changes that are primarily to make it more
suitable for UmlAsBlueprint and UmlAsProgrammingLanguage. But
these changes increase the bulk of the UML – and thus make it harder for
those of who prefer UmlAsSketch…." via [Martin Fowler’s Bliki
Martin’s right, but he’s being too polite. The only people who want UML to become a programming language are in the trade. In the real world, the only way that UML is accepted is as a sketch. Martin probably knows this better than anyone, as his book UML Distilled (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0321193687/thinkinginnet-20) has deservedly sold roughly a bazillion more copies than the UML Reference Manual (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/020130998X/thinkinginnet-20)
