Wow, ty Aldebaran
. I'd be happy to help you with any questions. I just wrapped up another 1:30:00 video covering the latter part of that talk. I am hoping they'll add it as an addendum to the conf talk list. Otherwise, I will share it here. We can discuss here, also feel free to HMU on irc dot perl dot org. Similar username as to this one. I joined PM just to reply to this, much appreciated.
Update: I do want to make it very clear that the "regular expressions" I am discussing in this talk have nothing to do with perl's regexp engine. Though the topic is fundamentally similar since I hear that the perl regexp engine is DFA based. The perl regexp engine is far more powerful than a mere DFA. See:
