    Why, "AC" of course. If tell you to match "ABC" but leave the "B" out, what else could you possibly get?

    And what would @- and @+ contain?

    Another try:

    Then (?: and (?= would mean the exact same thing.
    Wait ... what? I don't follow that at all. A(?:B) means an "A" followed by a "B." A(?=B) means an "A" followed by a "B," except don't include the "B" in the match string. I'm not sure how the consecutive-ness of anything would impact that.

    What would be the difference between (?=A(?=B)) and (?=A(?:B))?

    Meanwhile the way I actually need it to work right now is not even an option. :-) […] I see how to work around it, thanks to your continued efforts to enlighten me.

    You’re aware that sentence 2 there directly contradicts sentence 1, yes? (Not that I agree with the characterisation as a “workaround”.)

    In fact, the situation is strictly opposite of what you claim: the way it does work allows you to achieve everything you need, and the way you think it ought to work would disallow many other things that are possible with the current model.

    This tool looks nice. Will you put it on CPAN?

    > It actually already is on CPAN

    I think preaction was referring to the tester analysis tool.

    But the reason why metacpan isn't showing your distribution is because it's not in the index. Why/how it didn't get indexed should be revealed by the email you got back from PAUSE when you did the upload.
