I am attempting to change my previously greedy quantification into a possessive modality.
My regex is: /(\d++\.\d++)($meanSearchTerm)/oi
Perl complains thusly: Nested quantifiers in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/([\d]++ <-- HERE \.[\d]++)( bits = mean)/ at ScanGenome.pl line 326, <RIBL> line 1.
I would like to resolve this without further capturing (so no additional parens).
Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
