    This is regexp for blah.

    A longer description in Markdown format.

    Examples:

     "123-456" =~ re("Example::re2");  # matches

    Another example that matches.

     "123-456-78901" =~ re("Example::re2");  # matches

    An example that does not match.

     123456 =~ re("Example::re2");  # doesn't match

    An example that does not get tested.

     123456 =~ re("Example::re2");  # doesn't match
  • re3

    This is a regexp for blah blah.

    ...

    This is a dynamic pattern which will be generated on-demand.

    The following arguments are available to customize the generated pattern:

    • variant

      Choose variant.

    Examples:

    An example that matches.

     "123-456" =~ re("Example::re3", {variant=>"A"});  # matches

    An example that doesn't match.

     "123-456" =~ re("Example::re3", {variant=>"B"});  # doesn't match
  • re4

    This is a regexp that does capturing.

    Examples:

     "123-456" =~ re("Example::re4"); # matches, $1=123, $2=456
    
     "foo-bar" =~ re("Example::re4");  # doesn't match
  • re5

    This is another regexp that is anchored and does (named) capturing.

    Examples:

     "123-456" =~ re("Example::re5"); # matches, $+{"cap1"}=123, $+{"cap2"}=456
    
     "something 123-456" =~ re("Example::re5");  # doesn't match
