I really don't understand your example. I substituted warns with prints:

use strict; use warnings; my $re =qr{a}; my $re2 =qr{a}; print $re == $re2,"\n"; print $re2 == $re2,"\n"; print 0+$re,"\n"; print 0+$re2,"\n";

and this is the result:

sini@ordinalfabetix:~$ ./ 1 135589228 135591376 sini@ordinalfabetix:~$

The last two lines are NOT equal, because are references to two different scalars. And, as a consequence, $re != $re2 (and $re == $re, but it was expected).

So numerical comparison doesn't tell you if two regex are equal, but only if they are the same (reference).

Rule One: "Do not act incautiously when confronting a little bald wrinkly smiling man."
