this regex literal won't work in IE


aawwawa Nov 29, 2012


Garrrrh, really? What about it? Would !new RegExp("^\\s*<").test(elements) be any better?

I actually have IE, but unfortunately I'm not firing it up to test this, since every time I open it, it crashes my machine. :(

Hmm.. I'm not sure it's actually going to be a problem as-is in IE. You could paren for clarity: !(/^\s*</).test(elements).
In any case, a good unit test suite will pick up any problems with old IE so working on that should be your next task to figure out.

If you want a full IE test suite then you can download and use these virtual machine images direct from Microsoft exactly for this purpose:

Yeah, I suppose I should've said it tends to crash my machine... I gave it a try with all my work saved, and it ended up working. So I know it def works with IE8, not to say anything of the others, because this prints falsetrue.

I'll work on the test suite some time soon, though I may (or may not) need some pointers when I do. :)

yeah. what i meant was that it just needed the parens..... 11 months later

still interested in this @aawwawa, I'm keen if you can cook up some tests for it, just some basic stuff to test the query() path and the normalize() path if you can.
