I see this has been brought up time after time,
however, I think this is a very valuable feature.
Microsoft's .NET regular expression object supports this
and I find it very useful. I use a little tool called
Expresso to test regular expression patterns, if you want
to try some tests.
It would be nice if the sub_match struct had a
collection member, also accessible by an index operator
(), that would normally be null, unless there were
sub_match?s. Also, the existing cast operator for the
string could be expanded to iterate through them.
Is something like this in the works? Or maybe even
