( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It was golfing exercise, where I tried everything possible presumably correct from language spec POV as I see it, be it sketchy or not. In the end I didn't need @-, so no problem at all, thank you, just curiosity. Perhaps I know less about regular expressions than I thought.

Consistent behaviour would be $#- and $#+ both the same and either 0 or 2 here. And all three $1, $+, $^N ending up the same here, also. It's not what I observe.

Can you explain debug output, why the

Matching REx "(?=(a))" against "a"

and then

SUCCEED: subpattern success...

are mentioned twice?

Same with perl -MRegexp::Debugger -e '$_="a";s/(?=(a))/b/g', I hit Enter too many times, why are steps 0..7 repeated twice?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
