That's not great indeed. I don't really hope this will make much of a difference, but you did not have to capture the match with parenthesis. You could have just used $/:perl6 -n -e 'say $/ if m/<<\w**5>>/' logs.txt
On the other hand, even if this does make a difference, the optimizer should have converted it automatically.
