Tests a regular expression for recognising binary numbers that are divisible by 3.

#Example: /.*/
# This wraps your regex so the whole binary string has to match it

Python function for adding an instance method to an object
def add_method(obj, f, fname):
"""Adds the instance method from function f to the object obj, callable by fname (i.e. obj.fname())
