Detect iOS version less than 5 with JavaScript

This is related to the "fix" for position:fixed in older versions of iOS. However, if iOS5 or greater is installed, the fix breaks the page.

I know how to detect iOS 5: navigator.userAgent.match(/OS 5_\d like Mac OS X/i) but that won't work for iOS6 when it eventually comes around, or even iOS 5.0.1, only a 2 digit version.

So this is what I have atm.

$(document).bind("scroll", function() {
    if((navigator.userAgent.match(/iPhone/i)) || (navigator.userAgent.match(/iPod/i)) || (navigator.userAgent.match(/iPad/i))) {
        if (navigator.userAgent.match(/OS 5_\d like Mac OS X/i)) {
    else {


This snippet of code can be used to determine any version of iOS 2.0 and later.

function iOSversion() {
  if (/iP(hone|od|ad)/.test(navigator.platform)) {
    // supports iOS 2.0 and later: <>
    var v = (navigator.appVersion).match(/OS (\d+)_(\d+)_?(\d+)?/);
    return [parseInt(v[1], 10), parseInt(v[2], 10), parseInt(v[3] || 0, 10)];

ver = iOSversion();

if (ver[0] >= 5) {
  alert('This is running iOS 5 or later.');

Virtualenv and code location in debian

python debian virtualenv

I am looking at debian and virtualenv and I was wondering what directory structure people would recommend. From my reading it seems something like this is a good idea:

Does ldstr internally implement newobj?

c# .net jit cil il

As we all know strings are implicitly instantiated, meaning that we don't have to use new in order to get a reference to an object of one.
