Cool! I recently stumbled upon this regex when I was searching google on how to implement 'foo' and 'bar' into my application. Your regex really opened my eyes to the use of regular expressions for this. Thanx!

...even from Hello World! For example, to a beginner it might not be obvious that, this pattern can also be used to match against the text "football" and "afoot" :-)

I should probably delete this one, but I'm fine with it simply getting a terrible rating. It was, as should be obvious, just a test that the library was working, back before it had hundreds of useful regexes in it.

What are you doing, writing a tutorial to get your "contributor" count up? If you know anything about regex, you would know this!
