in reply to Perl6::Rules Capturing

There are known problems with Perl6::Rules under perl 5.8.4 and later. I.e. some features of the module don't work properly any more. Since Perl6::Rules came out (and worked) under 5.8.3, the valiant Perl 5 porters have started fixing some very deep problems that the module had exposed in the core regex engine, specifically problems in the way that closures embedded in regexes (don't) work.

The regex engine has been a moving target since then, and probably will be for some time yet, so I've held off reworking Perl6::Rules until I can genuinely fix it.

And, of course, CTDS (Chronic Tuit Deficiency Syndrome) hasn't helped either. :-(

I'm certainly not happy about the current situation, and I apologize for the unsatisfactory state of the module, but I'm afraid there isn't anything I can do about it in the immediate future.
