“reg_node overrun” when compiling regular expressions

diagonallemma has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello,

When I try to run the code below I get "panic: reg_node overrun trying to emit 46 at test.pl line 26." (Line 26 is "our $re_title = qr/^".) I'm at a loss at how to fix this. Thanks in advance for any hints.

perl -v says: This is perl 5, version 14, subversion 2 (v5.14.2) built for i686-linux-gnu-thread-multi-64int

use strict; use warnings; use utf8; my $re_address_word = qr/\b(?: universit|center|centre|institute?|sciences?|college|research| avenue|street|philosophy|professor|address|department| umass )\b/ix; our $re_publication_word = qr/\b(?: forthcoming|editors?|edited|publish\w*|press|volume to\sappear\sin|draft|editor\w*|reprints?|excerpt| circulation|cite )\b/ix; my $re_notitle = qr/ $re_address_word | $re_publication_word | \b(?:thanks?| @| [12]\d{3}| abstract )/ix; our $re_title = qr/^ (?!.*$re_notitle?.*) \p{IsAlpha} /x;

    I don't hit the error on 5.10.1, so probably a Perl version related bug.

    What happens when you try to substitute the regexes on your own?

    "This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi" runs it without error.

    "This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi" runs it without error.

    "This is perl 5, version 12, subversion 4 (v5.12.4) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread" runs it without error.

    "This is perl 5, version 12, subversion 2 (v5.12.2) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi" runs it without error.

    "This is perl 5, version 14, subversion 2 (v5.14.2) built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi" gets "panic: reg_node overrun trying to emit 46 at test.pl line 26."

    It happens on v5.14.1, not on v5.12.2 , not on v5.16.1

    I see, thanks. I hoped it would just be a bug in the Perl version.

    FYI, when you use multi-line regular expression syntax, watch closely for proper termination of the regex.   (A Perl-sensitive text editor with color highlighting is hugely helpful here.)   If Perl fails to catch the proper end-of-expression, due to a syntax error on your part (however slight), it can try to treat the rest of the program source-code as part of it, leading sometimes to “bogosities” like this where it runs out of resources before it figures out what it is doing (wrong).   But, since this appears (so they say) to be limited to a particular version of Perl, it is indeed probably just-a-bug.
