NAME

Regexp::Common::lingua -- provide regexes for language related stuff.

SYNOPSIS

    use Regexp::Common qw /lingua/;

    while (<>) {
        /^$RE{lingua}{palindrome}$/    and  print "is a palindrome\n";
    }

DESCRIPTION

Please consult the manual of Regexp::Common for a general description of the works of this interface.

Do not use this module directly, but load it via Regexp::Common.

$RE{lingua}{palindrome}

Returns a pattern that recognizes a palindrome, a string that is the same if you reverse it. By default, it only matches strings consisting of letters, but this can be changed using the {-chars} option. This option takes a character class (default is [A-Za-z]) as argument.

If {-keep} is used, only $1 will be set, and set to the entire match.

This pattern requires at least perl 5.6.0.
