Remove formatting codes from regexes table

These are currently unsupported (and therefore incorrectly rendered).
A grep of the doc tree suggests that no other `=table`s are currently using formatting codes.
Related issue: github.com/Raku/doc-website/issues/195.

[Coke] Looking for community feedback: Should the "official" doc link for a Foo::Bar type in core be /type/Foo/Bar or /type/Foo::Bar - both are supported on the website right now but we are going to make all the links in the source conform to one of those. 15:30
I have a preference for the former but understand users might prefer the latter. 15:31
15:32 jgaz left 15:38 kjp left, kjp joined
dakkar [Coke]: since the existence of class/role/subset `Foo::Bar` implies the existence of package `Foo`, the fully hierarchical `/type/Foo/Bar` looks fine; only problem: `/type/Foo` may not refer to an actual type 15:47
so would that 404, or redirect to a description of package Foo?
Nemokosch I already had a take: unlike Java and Python, it's a mere convention to organize namespaces like hierarchical folders. It's fine that Rakudo rolls with this but it is rather an implementation detail, not something to organize high-level content by 15:54
[Coke] If there is anything at the top level package level, it'd show up. If not, a 404. 15:58
In some cases, there isn't anything in the package. Maybe we could force it to be a listing of all children folders.
dakkar's point here contrasts with nemokosch's - it does make sense to group content under Foo:: - namespaces imply grouping. 16:01
16:01 jgaz joined, cfa joined
dakkar [Coke]: `/type/Foo` should describe *type* Foo 16:02
if there's no type, it should either 404 or redirect to `/package/Foo` or `/class/Foo` or whatever
Nemokosch consider that there is Proc and Proc::Async, IO and IO::Path and so on
dakkar (or are we showing classes/roles under `/type/`? still, packages are definitely not types, right?) 16:03
Nemokosch one could argue that this is the problem itself - to make Proc and Proc::Async objects of the same kind
one can carry the analogy through by consistently translating :: to /, that's a fair point 16:04
dakkar uh? both Proc and Proc::Async are classes
Nemokosch exactly 16:05
dakkar so they are "of the same kind"… I'm clearly failing to understand something
Nemokosch they essentially do the same thing, thre is no hierarchy between them
dakkar there's namespace containment
Nemokosch yes, and that rather seems a source of confusion than anything useful 16:06
dakkar mah, we've been fine with that in perl5 for decades
Nemokosch in practice, they are classes that address the same problem, they are siblings, if anything
No, not "fine" with that
there is a reason why Perl5 had to go 16:07
dakkar perl5 hasn't gone anywhere 😁
Nemokosch unfortunately, but it should have, that was the whole point of Perl 6
dakkar what problems has the "nested namespaces don't imply anything else" caused?
Nemokosch how many problems should they cause? is confusion not enough? 16:08
dakkar you are the first person I see to report confusion (in ~25 years), but of course my sample set is not necessarily representative 16:09
Nemokosch but then again not everybody uses Perl
[Coke] dakkar: there is no /class/Foo
Nemokosch by the way, this is a good illustration of the schizophrenia this project has been suffering from
too radical for Perl users, not radical enough to not carry the Perl baggage 16:10
dakkar [Coke]: ok, I guess there's also no /package/Foo, we only document names that can be used as (nominal?) types 16:11
[Coke] (should 404) - ok, that's the current setup.
dakkar 404 is sensible enough
[Coke] dakkar: correct. Something we can think about updating, but that's a different issue.
dakkar `/type/Foo/Bar` would be wrong for perl5 (because the existence of `Foo::Bar` does not imply the existence of `Foo`), but it's fine for raku 16:12
Nemokosch Foo is allowed to have nothing to do with Foo::Bar, though, and (for the better or maybe for the worse) the core uses this possibility, as illustrated 16:14
[Coke] so we basically have one vote for each. (dakkar, Nemo*) - if anyone has a preference, please let us know in #raku-doc, where I now retreat to.
16:14 [Coke] left 16:20 jpn joined
tonyo vote on what? 16:28
oh, module path on the docs site? i think the module name rather than treating it as a path is more consistent with how CURs work 16:29
Nemokosch do all objects in Raku have .WHO available on them? 16:31
dakkar Nemokosch: I believe so
tellable6 dakkar, I'll pass your message to Nemokosch
lizmat although I think it's technically possible to create an object that has a HOW but not a WHO, I don't think we currently have any 16:33
but I could well be wrong :-)
Geth doc/type-links: 96dbf7cd6f | (Will Coleda)++ | xt/rakudoc-types.rakutest
Prefer colons in link URLs.
Nemokosch to me, that means, basically any symbol can act like a namespace?
lizmat as long as its a valid identifier 16:37
Nemokosch hm, okay 16:52
so I mean what follows is that if you have some Foo::Bar, that doesn't really tell you anything about Foo in itself, only Foo.WHO (that it contains Bar as a key) 16:53
so even if there is a hierarchy, that hierarchy is not between Foo and whatever Bar links to 16:54

dakkar correct, it's namespace containment, not any "hierarchy" (which feels a vague term to me)
