It also might not be related to COW and instead be something in the regex engine that is specific to windows.

I wouldn't yet assume that it doesn't afflict Linux.
Sure, there's nothing much in the figures that hippo choroba posted earlier, but I wonder if the same thing might become evident on Linux if "1e6" is increased to "2e6" or beyond.

It's probably worth flagging with p5p

Probably, yes.
The 5.38.0 perlvar docs still warn about the potential performance hits of using $&, but then they also say (regarding $`, $& and $')
In Perl 5.20.0 a new copy-on-write system was enabled by default, +which finally fixes most of the performance issues with these three vari +ables, and makes them safe to use anywhere.
But note that it says "most of the performance issues".
And I'm still a bit curious to know whether a perl-5.38.0 windows perl built without COW would suffer the same slowdown.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
