No doubt - advantage for compiling the regular expressions only once. But I'd take it just a tiny bit further - instead of all the copying around of the line:

#list of regex-strings my @regex = ( 's/(a+)/\U$1/g', 's/([bz]+)/XX/g', ); #is now a list of subroutines @regex = map { eval "sub { $_ }" } @regex;
Notes: got rid of the copying of the line in and out, we'll just work on the global $_; also got rid of the extraneous assignment to the global $sub variable. Now you use it like:
my @text = ( "aaaabbzz", "bbbyyy", ); for ( @text ) { print "org $_\n"; for my $re ( @regex ) { &$re(); # or even just &$re } print "new $_\n"; }
The advantage here is when you have many regex's (which the OP said they would) - less copying of data around. It's just a tiny bit more dangerous since so many functions modify $_, though.
