DRY validates_format_of?
In a model I have following validates_format_of. Is there an easy way to DRY this up?

...ed in any ''civilisation'', and the fact that we still have to dirty our minds with this in Rails is something that (sh/c)ould ideally be corrected in Rails (preferably before the release of 1.2 (?)) or in the form of a plugin.

negate the regexp in validates_format_of
...ame. However, the newbies might not know how to write a regexp that excludes a match, instead of tests for it. Understand - I''m just asking this question to help them. I have been using Regexps since ''grep'' on Xenix! But the newbies here might not know how to do this: validates_format_of :field_must_break, :with => /\n/ validates_format_of :field_must_not_break, :with => /^[^\n]$/ The second one fails with data that correctly have no \n linefeed in them. How do I - I mean "they" - negate a regexp? -- Phlip

I''ve got a regex validation on one of the inputs to my application, a file path. Now these only ever come from trusted users (administrators), but it would still be good to catch the most obvious attempts at directory traversal, etc. I''ve already got a regex that only allows \w then -, . and /.
