I'm trying to improve a cookbook
(http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/Txt2tags) and I have difficulties
I want for example a special markup with **bold** to be marked as bold.
I have this line:
Markup ('txt2tags_bold' , 'directives', '/\*\*(.*?)\*\*/'
It works but I get wrong output when having for example **this and
**this, because this kind of text is not supposed to be marked as bold.
(**this and** should be bold on the other hand)
So I modified my rule this way, to exclude white spaces before or after:
Markup ('txt2tags_bold' , 'directives',
'/\*\*[^\s](.*?)[^\s]\*\*/' , "'''$1'''");
Now it almost works, **this and **this are not catched, but the bold
parts are not correct, the first and last letters are striped out, for
example **another** would become nothe (in bold). Do you know why, and
how to correct this?
