Update: I finally realized that  $1 in the
    (?(?{ $1 =~ tr/0-9// > 15 || $1 =~ tr/0-9// < 9 }) (*FAIL))
sub-pattern above can be replaced by  $^N to eliminate one absolute back-reference. Using a named capture group does the trick for the remaining absolute capture, giving the regex below. (However, there may be a speed penalty associated with named captures – but I haven't Benchmark-ed this.)

my $ndn = qr{ # cannot begin after digit or any differentiator char. (?<! \d) (?<! $diff) # begin potential main pattern capture. ($d_min # begin main pattern group with minimum digits (?<DIFF> $diff)? # group DIFF: possible differentiator char # match to max number of digit(s)/single-diff groups. (?: \d+ \k{DIFF} (?= \d)){0,9} # end main pattern group capture with minimum digits. $d_min) # end main group # main pattern cannot be followed by a digit or... (?! \d) # ... by the diff char if any, else by any diff char. (?(<DIFF>) (?! \k{DIFF}) | (?! $diff)) # qualify potential main pattern for min/max digits. (?(?{ $^N =~ tr/0-9// < 9 || $^N =~ tr/0-9// > 15 }) (*FAIL)) }xms;
