Hahahaha. Certainly that would be the best choice in the present day.
People forget about fundamentals and what it was like walking uphill both ways to school. They other day I was talking with a friend about a UDF I had dropped into a database for an old client that performed a RegEx search pretty similar to Ken Henderson's
sample here and he was baffled by my approach.
I forgot to add it was SQL Server 2000 base being accessed by a classic ASP request. I thought I read an article this week or last (I want to say it was by Rob Conery) about how we are now at a point where a lot of people only know .NET already. The concept
and clunkiness of old school approaches are now foreign. I think that is good and bad, personally.
