in reply to how to measure strictness of a regex ?

re::regmust may be of some help...

use 5.014; use strict; use warnings; use re (); use List::Util 'sum'; sub re_strictness ($) { sum map length, re::regmust shift } say re_strictness qr/Dad+y/; # says 5 say re_strictness qr/D.+/; # says 1
package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name

    I, also, have some (admittedly, rather idle) curiosity: what is the purpose of the prototype in the  re_strictness() function definition?

      I think my original code when I was testing was something along the lines of:

      print re_strictness qr/.../, "\n";

      In which case the ($) prototype helps Perl see the "\n" as a parameter for print, not for re_strictness.

      By the way, it's worth pointing out that qr/^Dad+y$/ is also considered slightly stricter than qr/Dad+y/.

      use 5.014; use strict; use warnings; use re (); use List::Util 'sum'; sub re_strictness ($) { sum map length, re::regmust shift } print re_strictness qr/^Dad+y$/, "\n", re_strictness qr/Dad+y/, "\n", re_strictness qr/D.+/, "\n", ;
      package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
