in thread regex for strings with escaped quotes

I there a way to print the regex that is used?

That's what the second line of output above is. Simplification of that regex is left as an exercise to the reader :-) (Update: Nevermind.)

BTW, you can also use the -keep feature to get only the part between the quotes:

use Regexp::Common qw/delimited/; q{ x "foo \"bar\"" y } =~ /$RE{delimited}{-delim=>'"'}{-keep}/; print $3, "\n"; # prints: foo \"bar\"
