The wordwrap thingy when you try to post notes to the manual SUCKS!  I'm trying to post a LONG regexp to the preg_replace list and I cannot unless I break it up.  As you know, if you break up a regexp pattern, IT WILL NOT WORK.  And you know as well as I that there'll be lusers who won't understand to glue it back together before using it.

What's up with this?

PHP has that cool string concatenation feature, don't you know? ;)

$regexp = "/\\w" .
          "+" .

I tried to post a note and got the following error message :

? Your note contains a bit of text that will result in a line that is too long, even after using wordwrap(). ?

It seems the note I tried to post contains too long lines. It both contains text and a PHP script. You can get the note at

I don't understand why the note system uses the wordwrap function. You need to word wrap text in a text based environment, not in a browser. The browser itself word wraps the text it displays.

So does the wordwrap function apply to the text or the script ? At least the error message should be updated to help users to correctly format their notes. Better the noting system should be able to reformat the code without displaying this error message.

jmmolina: we check whether lines are wrappable, because people *hate* to scroll horizontally. If your user note is not wrappable, then it will not get accepted. Too long commands without whitespace are not readable anyway.
