If you're having trouble understanding a regular expression, and the documentation doesn't seem to help you, YAPE::Regex::Explain is probably the tool you've been searching for!
Go to http://www.pobox.com/~japhy/YAPE/ for more information on this module. In a nutshell, you give it a regex, and it tells you, in a verbose, node-by-node outline, what the regex does.
