And since I'm getting excited about Perl6 pattern matching and want the practice, let's do this with a Perl6 rule, line for line with the above Perl5 regex.
# <Perl6> /^^ \h* $$ # Match a line that only contains horizontal whitespace, + if anything (blank line). ( # Capture to $1. [ # Group, but don't capture. ^^ \# # Comment delimiter at the start of a line. .* $$ # Everything until the end of the line, includes the new +line. ]+ # One or more comment lines in a row. ) # End $1 capture. $id # The key we're looking for. This matches as a literal s +tring, not a pattern. / # </Perl6>
And here's the short version:
m/^^ \h* $$ $ret:=([^^ \# .* $$]+) $id/;
You can see I added a small bit ('$ret:=') just before the capture. This binds the value of the capture, $1 in this case, to $ret if the pattern matches, but not if it fails. Just what we want.
