#scan(pattern, cons = false) ⇒ Object

Scans the source for a given pattern. Note, that this is not your usual scan() method. For one thing, the pattern argument has some requirements; for another, the source can be consumed. You can easily confuse this method. Originally, the patterns were easier to construct and this method more robust, because this method generated search regexps on the fly; however, this was computationally expensive and slowed down the entire REXML package considerably, since this is by far the most commonly called method. /^s*(#pattern, with no groups)(.*)/. The first group will be returned; the second group is used if the consume flag is set. everything after it in the Source. pattern is not found.
