And I also changed /\S+/ to /\S+(?!\S)/ to make sure each elem was a maximum-length word.

Useless. P::RD will not backtrack through /.../. They always match as much as possible.

For example,

use Data::Dumper qw( Dumper ); use Parse::RecDescent (); my $p = Parse::RecDescent->new(<<'__END_OF_GRAMMAR__'); parse : /a*/ /a/ /\Z/ { [ $item[1], $item[2] ] } __END_OF_GRAMMAR__ print(Dumper($p->parse('aaaaa')));


$VAR1 = undef;

I almost said "The \b in /\d+\b/ is also useless.", but it turns "2foo bar" into an error.
