in reply to Variable length lookbehind not implemented in regex

... fails with the error "Variable length lookbehind not implemented in regex" ... ways around this ...

See Re: perl regexp question excluding strings for one technique for emulating variable-length negative look-behind.

Update: See also the general discussion of this topic in Why is variable length lookahead implemented while lookbehind is not? and the particular example in Re^2: Why is variable length lookahead implemented while lookbehind is not?.

[hippo]: (asking because I'm sure you said before about learning English) Did you know there are 2 different words for smaller quantities in English? They are "less" and "fewer". Fewer applies to a number of discrete things like days.
