>From today's backslash spectacular:

   "I searched my .bash_history for the line with the highest ratio of
   special characters to regular alphanumeric characters, and the winner
      cat out.txt | grep -o "\\\[[(].*\\\[\])][^)\]]*$" ... 
   I have no memory of this and no idea what I was trying to do,
   but I sure hope it worked."
