8.10. Exercises

See Appendix A for answers to the following exercises.

Several of these exercises ask you to use the test program from this chapter. You could manually type this program, taking great care to get all of the odd punctuation marks correct.[*] But you'll probably find it faster and easier to download the program and some other goodies from the O'Reilly web-site, as we mentioned in the Preface. You'll find this program under the name pattern_test.[†]

[*] If you do type it up on your own, remember that the backtick character (`) is not the same as the apostrophe ('). On most full-sized computer keyboards these days (in the U.S., at least), the backtick is found on a key immediately to the left of the 1 key.

[†] Don't be surprised if the program you download is a slightly different version than what we have in the book.
