in thread regexp to match repeated charater

Your first sentence confused me. The "spaceship" operator is <=> (numeric comparison operator). I couldn't figure out what you were going to do with that. Then, after glancing at the code, reading your note at the bottom, wondering "What do you mean, there really isn't a spaceship operaton?", looking back at the code more closely, I saw you meant =()= to be the "spaceship" operator. Same name, different usage.

    Oops. You are quite right. I did of course mean the infamous operator. I leave it to your imagination to figure out why =()= was so named. I shall amend the parent node accordingly. Thanks.
