Hi choroba,

Hm, the * prototype is a really cool idea, too bad about that... here's a less elegant workaround (also incorporates AnomalousMonk's suggestion). As far as I can tell, for single letter modifiers it's only m and s that cause a problem, the others (/ixpodualn) are fine, and multi-letter modifiers are fine as far as they don't clash with any other subs (like main, min, or sum) or operators (like and, although that's not a valid combination of modifiers). With the letters "msixpodualn" you can actually spell a lot of words :-)

use List::Util qw/min sum/; sub qre (&;*) { my $re = shift->(); eval 'qr/$re/'.(@_ ? lc shift : '') || die $@ } say qre{ join '|', qw/foo bar/ }M; say qre{ join '|', qw/foo bar/ }msx; say qre{ join '|', qw/foo bar/ }Min; say qre{ join '|', qw/foo bar/ }Sum; __END__ (?^m:foo|bar) (?^msx:foo|bar) (?^min:foo|bar) (?^ums:foo|bar)

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.
