Fun with regexes!

Specifically, fun with regexes processing other regexes. We've got a bunch of regexes for processing logs, and I needed to change their identical beginning strings to match the log format more precisely. So I figured sed was the right tool for the job.

And now, after assembling the sed command string... well, I still figure sed's the right tool for the job, but that doesn't mean I'm not amused.

s/\^\[\^\[\]\*\\\[/\^\\w\+\\s\+\\w\+\\s\+\\d\+\\s\+\\d\+:\\d\+:\\d\+\\s\+\[\^\[\]\*\\\[/


Ow, my head. But at least it works.

5:10 PM on Friday. So close....
