That's really just an FYI,

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't moved onto 5.18 yet, but I will be doing so soon.

Thankfully, my primary use of the feature is where I have regex elements that are codependent. EG.

A => qr[...${B()}...], B => qr[...${C()}...], C => qr[...${A()}...],

Which doesn't work because there is no way to order them such that all dependancies can be resolved at compile-time.

Instead I have to use:

A => qr[...(??{B()})...], B => qr[...(??{C()})...], C => qr[...(??{A()})...],

Which doesn't seem to be affected by the changes.
