Pardon me for perhaps being stupid here ... but ... what exclusive right does «the Perl language» (tah, dahhh...!) have to “the same interpretation of RE-syntax that «the Perl language» does?”
Perl is (just ...) “a programming language,” and, as such, its underlying implementation of “regular expressions” most-certainly is not unique. In fact, a great many (other...) languages “rather go out of their way” to implement “Perl-compatible” versions of it.
So ... prithee ... “down-vote away,” I still really want to know ... what exactly is The Problem Here?
If you (merely ...)
“want access to a ‘Perl-compatible™ Regex’ from ...” any of the aforesaid languages, then you certainly
can do so without resorting to “Perl-language mechinations!”
