Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2007-12-03 21:35:33 UTC
Since the complete regex is under your control, you may match per-line with the //m option.

Nor would ^ and $ have anything to do with the callback option which the modified comment describes.
Comment 2 Dan Jacobson 2007-12-04 03:34:04 UTC
What I'm trying to say is it is not clear to people used to man perlop,
 ^   Match the beginning of the line
 $   Match the end of the line (or before newline at the end)
just what the scope is that you are matching, and it might be good to add
some words about it.
