    Perl 5.37.8 along with a single-splat version.  The double-splat
    version was removed without deprecation in Perl 5.37.9, so it is
    being removed without deprecation here as well, per my stated policy
    about development functionality.  The single-splat version still

    Only standalone graphemes and non-characters allowed as delimiters
    starting with Perl 5.29.0.
    Non-ASCII delimiters started working in 5.8.3, so that is what
    perl_version_introduced() returns for them.

    Collateral with all this, accept word characters as delimiters, but
    only with at least one space between the operator and the expression

    \N{} now parses as the unknown token, not NoOp, regardless of the

    in 5.28.0 (5.27.1, actually). The policy when the parse changes is
    to use the most-modern parse. Hence this change.

    As a side effect of this, the unknown token's explain() method now
    returns something -- normally the associated error.

    Caret modifier was not turning off /n. This was complicated by the

    After '.', Unicode classes, and bracketed classes (including extended)
    they are still legal.

  Make /\b{/ an error
    Perl fails to parse the above, because once it sees the '\b{' it wants
    to find one of the extended boundary assertions (like \b{wb}), and
    declares an error when it does not. So we check for this and rebless the

  Do not end regex set prematurely on finding '])'
    The problem is that '])' can occur within an extended bracketed

    item in a group is a regular bracketed character class and there is
    no white space between the end of the character class and the end of
    the group.

    The structure was being reblessed to
    PPIx::Regexp::Structure::Unknown, but the number of parse failures
    was not being incremented.

    This turns out to be what Perl itself does, as shown by

  Correct mis-parse of ' s///'. Leading white space is supposed to be

    Thanks to Klaus Rindfrey for catching this.
    The tokenizer now does a preliminary scan for delimiting brackets
    and modifiers. Anything after the modifiers except for white space
    is now made into a PPIx::Regexp::Token::Unknown, resulting in a
    parse failure being reported. The previous implementation simply
    assumed a valid expression, and in the case of the expression in the

  Add method error() to PPIx::Regexp::Element. This should return an
    error message when the element is in error -- normally when it has
    been blessed into the unknown token or structure.

  Add method modifier_asserted() to PPIx::Regexp::Element. This walks
    the parse tree backward to determine if the given modifier is in
    effect for the element.

  Don't initialize effective modifiers with '^', since that wrongly

  Implement negation of match-semantic modifiers (e.g. 'no re /u;') by
    setting the relevant datum to undef.

  Support for default modifiers. This includes:

    * default_modifiers argument to new() in PPIx::Regexp,
      PPIx::Regexp::Tokenizer, and PPIx::Regexp::Dumper

    * Public method modifier_asserted() on PPIx::Regexp, to return
      whether a given modifier is actually in effect. The results of the

  Require Test::More 0.88 for installation. Eliminate all the 'eval

  Ensure that \N{$foo} parses as a Unicode literal, not a quantified \N.
    The ordinal() method returns undef for this.

  Understand the /aa modifier, introduced with 5.13.10.

  When parsing an interpolation from a replacement string (rather than a

  Whitespace tweak in the PPIx::Regexp::Dumper test output for the

  Replace the PPI logic in PPIx::Regexp::Token::Code with a call to
    $tokenizer->find_matching_delimiter(). This is actually the way Perl

  Push the perl_version_introduced() back to 5.0 at the request of

  Fixed RT 56864 - PPIx::Regexp::Lexer fails in Perl::Critic under Perl

  Parse \N{...} in accordance with perl5115delta. The curlys must
    contain an alpha followed by alphanumerics, spaces, parens, colons,
    or dashes. \N{ without a matching } is a character class (if legal)
    followed by a literal '{'.

  Parse \N inside a character class as PPI::Regexp::Token::Unknown,
    since Perl 5.11.5 considers this a compile error. A \N{...} inside a
