You obviously have not understood the (sometimes catastrophic) performance issues that backtracking can cause. True story. I once saw a person who should have split on the comma instead try to use /(.*),(.*),(.*),(.*),(.*),(.*),(.*),(.*),(.*)/ to pull his data out. Even though this was guaranteed to work on his dataset, he thought that Perl was slow because this performed so pathetically.
