in reply to Find out which subpattern matched in regex

You can use "given/when" constructs to match against a regex array from 5.10 on

given ($_) { when (@reglist) { # you have a match } default { # you don't have a match } }
If you spot any bugs in my solutions, it's because I've deliberately left them in as an exercise for the reader! :-)
