Look Who Cited To Justia For Supreme Court Holding.
Natural Born Citizen ^ | 10-27-2011 | Leo Donofrio

Posted on 10/27/2011 8:58:05 PM PDT by Danae

There’s a bogus astroturfing mantra going ’round the blogosphere which sounds something like this, “No real lawyer would ever use an online web site like Justia.“ The talking point is thoroughly debunked by a very powerful legal source. Ever heard of Perkins Coie? They are the law firm which defended Obama in eligibility suits before he was elected. Ever heard of Bob Bauer? He is a partner in Perkins Coie and was General Counsel of Obama For America 2008, then White House Counsel, and is now back in private practice as Obama’s personal attorney to lead the charge in the 2012 election.

Perkins Coie is as powerful and shrewd a law firm as has ever existed and hey, what do you know kids, their mega influential legal blog cited to Justia in an article published there on June 28, 2010, “Business Methods Patents Survive, But Not Bilski’s Patent“:

“The next key decision was Parker v. Flook, 437 U.S. 584 (1978)[3]. The process claims there involved a practical application (updating the value of an alarm limit for ending a chemical reaction), but the only novel feature of the process was the specific manner in which the alarm limit was calculated…

[3] http://supreme.justia.com/us/437/584/case.html“

So much for the “real lawyers don’t use online web sites like Justia” try. Perkins Coie certainly did. Now, post JustiaGate… not so much.

Regex with a good editor or Grep is a very powerful combination of tools. The problem with Regex is that use of that tool on a database requires extreme data structure.

I have used Regex and Grep to extract structure information from a 3,000 page cagalog. (small in comparison to this) That catalog was composed in Quark with a scripted input plug-in.

XML is another structure that lends itself to this type of editing.

The use as an excuse in this case is clearly total BS.

I completely agree. Regex is so brittle, that a .* instead of a \S is gonna break something bad enough to be noticed. bad enough that it would never make it past QA if it ever got that far. Not left in place for years...

More on that tomorrow!

Regex is, quite simply, the wrong tool to use in most cases.

Like you said, if your data isn’t structured in a particular way it doesn’t work; but more than that it’s VERY easy to leave out some case when writing one. (I’ve had to do a few of those corrections, not fun; and in my experience if it’s even moderately complicated it’s going to change.)

I don’t really trust regex for anything more complicated than a) removal of certain characters, and b) *simple* transforms, like perhaps changing cases.

I used Regex with Grep to recover item number sequencing for a 3,000 page catalog. With it I could recover the item sequencing (after it was edited for print) from the actual .pdf that I sent to the printer. I also used it to extract the page number for each item in the print document.

In order to make that work I unzipped the .pdf with PDFtk and used an editor to remover the proportional spacing syntax for the numeral “1” followed by “1” (numeral one). Then I used keying code for page number and item number. It worked beautifully. But it only worked because the text data was imported into Quark with Xdata or Xtags. Like extruding the document from the data.

In some cases it will also work with XML for similar purposes.

Grep (which handles Regex) in the right hands is a very powerful tool for manipulating text data.

>Grep (which handles Regex) in the right hands is a very powerful tool for manipulating text data. I won't argue against that; I've heard some amazing things done with it... but in my own experience the regex in use is always breaking/broken. I'm slightly more inclined to learn SNOBOL rather than gain a [working-]mastery of regex as 1) it will be another [programming] language to learn, and 2) it seems, just from an overview, to be more *useful* for pattern-matching. (And, as a plus, apparently it's been ported over to GNAT's Ada compiler as a compiler-specific package.)

I have used Regex with editors, Grep and Gnumeric (spreadsheet).

Regex syntax is not the same in all apps. Documentation is pretty sketchy on most apps concerning the use of Regex.

You never work on data that cannot be recovered.

It is amazing how fast Grep can strip patterns from text data. Huge file of text data in seconds or a few minutes.

I love command line apps for their efficiency. At one time I maintained about 80,000 images (& thumbnails). When the company I worked for then went to the web with their catalog I created all the images for the web from the print type images using Image Magick. I entered the command to create the images and simply went home for the evening. I do not know what time it finished the batch, but it was not even half the night.

As I added images I would batch process the new images and create the thumbnails using Image Magick. It would take only seconds to process several hundred images at a time. And the quality was great.

For non-trivial text manipulation tasks, you are MUCH better off with something like PERL.

The main tactic of leftist scum is lying.

They can never be counted on to tell the truth, EVER.

They are real quiet. I think their tactic now that the hinman play is done is to sit real quiet and hope this goes away. There really is no counter to this.

Oh you can count on them telling just enough of a truth to turn it into a lie by omission.

Ha ha!!!

Yes, they mix a teeny bit of truth in (although not always) to sort of add a bit of flavor, like food coloring.

Honestly I think they are a bit worried about what is coming out next.

They should be.

Yep. I think the word is out, “shush up! Let this die quiet like”. Thats usually a good sign that someone is worried. REAL worried. They should be.

Yeah, it’s funny how they all jump in together (with almost “a one - and a - two - and a - three!”) and then sometimes - wind whistling through the trees...

Obama’s attorneys Perkins & Couie used Justia for research. The cases tampered with are cases they would have researched.
