OK, maybe my communication style is bad or
somehow 'Perl newsgroup-hardened' ;-)

Of course, I'd like to really understand
these things (as they were intended), probably
modifying my look onto programming concepts then.

Therefore, I'd like to have a usable and understandable
example of Regex-object juggling, that shows clearly
what its real benefit is (or gives an idea of - ).

Afterwards, I'll surely try to deconstruct
your  assumptions hidden there in order to
*get a better understanding*  for myself ;-)

Regards and thanks
