in thread regex capturing problem

The point is not whether it can start matching in the middle of the string but whether it can start _capturing_ in the middle of the string. By adding a + to the first part you allow the RE engine to effectively ignore the ^ anchor while still forcing it to make a match at the end of the string.

perl -le "s,,reverse killer,e,y,rifle,lycra,,print"
