What would *you* like to see in regexen that is not currently
Since you asked ...
i) Translations - maybe PRXTRANS ???
ii) Case-folding prefixes - \u and \l to make upper and lower case changes,
particularly on the RHS of a substitution
iii) named character classes
iv) support for unicode
v) POSIX bracketed expressions
vi) character class subtraction : e.g. [[a-k]-[aei]]
vii) good documentation on PRXDEBUG - I have yet to find this in the Perl
ok ... some of these are not even the Perl flavor of regex, but can't one
still be hopeful?
