Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1811) ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34N 1078 : DEFECT REPORT NUMBER JP2-20

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1811?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=19660#action_19660 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-1811:

I still believe this is is confused.  

There is no regular expression implicit in <table:filter-condition>.  

When regular expressions are not being used for comparisons, how does this make sense?  

When regular expressions are being used as part of a comparison/match condition (however that is intended to be expressed), it is not clear why the regular expression is not sufficient by itself.  I assume that regular expression matching always begins at the beginning of the subject field, and the only question is whether or not it can quit early.  But a greedy regular expression can always be written to do the job without depending on this attribute at all.  I.e., if a regular expression is being used, there is no need for this attribute.  

It is only with comparisons that do not employ regular expressions where this attribute is useful.  In this case, I question why one would match anywhere as opposed to match the beginning on false.

If you tell me that is really what happens in the dominant implementation(s), I will be surprised, but I will not object.  But we should not make this provision unless it is really true in practice.
