m{ (\d+) # \1 start -- digits -- \1 end (?: , # , ( # \2 start (??{$++1}) # evaluate '$+ + 1' as a regex )+ # \2 end (and try again) ) }
The $+ refers to the last successful captured pattern, and that capture must have been closed. So the first time the (??{...}) is reached, $+ is $1's value. The next time, it's $2's (first) value, and then $2's new value, and so on.
