In perldoc POSIX::Regex, jettero writes:

Yes, I'm aware there's special support for alternate regular expression systems in perl 5.10.x ... let me know when people are done with perl 5.6 and 5.8 and I'll delete this from CPAN. Thanks.

I'm assuming that is a reference to re::engine::.* packages on CPAN that got pulled. But I've never heard of backpan before this.

I would like to move forward in a way least likely to cause problems in the future. re::engine::.* seems to provide the cleanest syntax, but until I know better I prefer CPAN to "backpan" packages.

I don't know why they got pulled from CPAN. Does anyone why that happened? Which would you use: POSIX::Regex from CPAN or re::engine::POSIX from backpan?

    I've no idea why it's pulled, you'd have to ask Avar if you wanted to know. I don't know POSIX::Regex so I can't advice on that.
