In patterns that have two or more labeled groups with the same label, \k<label> and \g{label} always refer to the leftmost group, but \g{N} can be a relative back reference." The way that \g{N} is mentioned here when comparing \k<label> with \g{label} is a bit confusing. Perhaps the text could be changed to the following: "While \k<label> is essentially the same as \g{label}, the \g{} syntax can also be used to refer to a relative back reference (i.e. \g{N})."

two notes

The note in "Character Class Shortcuts" states: "In Perl versions before v5.18, the \s didn’t match the vertical tab, next line, or nonbreaking space" The obvious implication is that they are all matched n newer versions. However, the note in "Unicode Properties" states: "The \p{Space} is slightly more expansive than \s because the property also matches NEXT LINE and NONBREAKING SPACE characters."

Change that sentence to "In Perl versions before v5.18, the \s didn’t match the vertical tab"

Noncapturing Parentheses

If you want to do a lot of grouping but no capturing, you can use the /n flag added in v5.22. It turns all parentheses into noncapturing groups: if (/(?:bronto)?saurus (?:BBQ )?(?:steak|burger)/n) { print "It matched\n"; # there is no $1 now } ---------------------------------------------------- The ?: are all made superfluous by /n.

table 9-1

I believe Table 9-1. Regular expression quantifiers with the nongreedy modifier contains an error on 5th row. The expression should be "{3,5}?" instead of "{3,5}" if description "At least three, as many as five, but as few as possible" is to be accurate.
