in reply to Slapping People For Help
in thread Why does a Perl 5.6 regex run a lot slower on Perl 5.8?
Maybe I was trying to convey too many ideas and feelings out of context (on one hand I'm carefully explaining the problem and seeking professional advice, on the other hand I'm criticizing the ones responsible). In the right context, anything can be made to sound the way it was intended, and I do apologize if this particular bit sounded too harsh.

I understand the frustration. It's sometimes difficult to remember that dozens of people have put thousands of hours into a project given away freely for other people to use when you find an apparent bug, but it's very wise to keep that in mind.
Your description of the problem was very good, though.
