Great, please take it to Seekers Of Perl Wisdom, see Re^2: Using Look-ahead and Look-behind

You forgot to include sample input, no matter, here are clues, run these and compare

perl -Mre=debug -le " $_ = q/foobarfoodrinkAATT/; /foo((?:(?!bar).){1, +5}?)AATT/; "

perl -Mre=debug -le " $_ = q/foobarfoodrinkAATTAATT/; /foo((?:(?!bar). +){6,10}?)AATT/; "

50,100 means match at minimum 50 but no more than 100

.* means match at least zero times

in my short example, first AATT appears at 6, so it is included in the match
