in thread Splitting a string

/\w(?=\w(?<=(..)))/g;

Isn't that rather more complicated than necessary?

/(?=(\w\w))./g;

      It is true that /PATTERN/g will DWIM when /PATTERN/ matches the empty string and not find an infinite number of matches as the same point.

      I, however, consider code that relies on this behaviour in order save one character to be less simple.
