Ah, you're using /g... in that case I'd just...

use v5.12; my $a = join '', map{ ('a'..'j')[rand 10] } 1 .. 1000; while ($a =~ m[(aa..)]g) { next if pos($a) % 4; say "Match at ", pos($a), ": ", $1; }

It's possible that (?(cond)yes-expr|no-expr) might be able to do what you want, but I've not had much luck with that.

Update: with the hints about pos % 4 below, I've managed to get (?(cond)yes-expr|no-expr) to work. Not sure how well it goes performance-wise in practice, but:

use v5.12; my $a = join '', map{ ('a'..'j')[rand 10] } 1 .. 1000;; while ($a =~ m[(?(?{ pos() % 4 })(*F)|(aa..))]g) { say "Match at ", pos($a), ": ", $1; }
package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
