is index faster than regexp for fixed text token? makes it look like index doesn't help much but I just took a quick look at that long discussion. My guess is the comparison with -1 after every index eats up any savings in search time. Plus the regex looks simpler. (update: simpler to Perl programmers anyway ;)
