May take a while on an old PC.

    Cool! Also check Pumping JAPH :-)
    map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]

      That's really cool. Now I'm trapped making some variant of it that's worth posting!

      Why would this take a long time on an old PC?

      Yes, it's wouldn't. Just encouraging people to wait it out, it can run more than 10 seconds or so.
