in thread search hang trouble

Because it's not a regex flag, per se. It's a pattern matching operator flag. perlre only covers /i, /m, /s, and /x.

    "man perlop" has the search options covered.

    I am starting to think that it may not be hung but searching for a long long time (many 10s of minutes). A product of the cascaded non-greedy searches failing at the last pattern. I will run it and see if it ever finishes. The file I am parsing is pretty small (few thousand lines) so it should finish if it can finish.
