Sorry, I don't understand—not the reason for what?Quoting myself where I am quoting you:
You're claiming $1 is "empty" until the the capture has completed. I'm pointing that the in the case of the OP, said first capture has completed.the variable that contains the contents of the first capture group is $1, but that's empty until the capture has completed.
Do you mean ‘re-entrant’?No, I don't. The current regexp-engine isn't re-entrant.
