Hello AnomalousMonk,

The output can’t be exactly the same across versions 5.8 to 5.14, because in 5.14.0 the (?^...) construct was added to signify default modifiers (see perl5140delta#Regular-Expressions). So, from 5.14 on, the output is:

14:13 >perl (?^:(?).*u\/ba$) A: match (?^msx: \A foo (?^:(?).*u\/ba$) ) B: match 14:13 >

But with that caveat, the behaviour is identical across my Strawberry Perl versions 5.12.3, 5.14.4, 5.18.2, 5.20.2, 5.22.0, 5.24.1, and 5.26.0.

My guess — and it’s no more than a guess — is that the documentation is wrong, and should read: Zero or more embedded pattern-match modifiers ...

Hope that helps,

Athanasius <°(((><contra mundum Iustus alius egestas vitae, eros Piratica,
