in reply to offset of named capture buffer

See also the 2008 thread Finding match offsets of named captures in 5.10 regex, in which it is suggested that a code block can be used to capture the offset with a call to pos.

Update: An example:

2:56 >perl -Mstrict -wE "my $s = q[My 25 cents.]; my ($p, $q); $s =~ +/(?<myref>(?{$p = pos})\d+(?{$q = pos}))/; say $+{myref}; say $p, q[ +--> ], $q;" 25 3 --> 5 2:56 >

[Corion]: So, it's not all bad with the new FF :)
[holli]: 2factor is a bit too much for me. i just use passwords like jhbn8789q27312laks dmaw98^
[moritz]: isn't there also some about:config setting to enable the old plugin API?
[Discipulus]: indeed, only the logo is nicer
[Corion]: moritz: Hmm, I doubt so, as I think they moved away from XUL and other UI stuff, which was used by most plugins I used
[Corion]: holli: I'm trying it out with Github and so far I don't dislike it. It's basically like an extra key I press to log in, which is an OK flow for Github
[Corion]: I haven't tried out recovery in case of a broken USB key though (even though I have three such U2F tokens lying around here)
[oiskuu]: randomly banging on the keyboard yields pretty poor entropy. much better to just base64 some /dev/random
moritz has a pass entry with recovery codes
[oiskuu]: Corion, what version was your old FF and what reason for upgrade?
