First, let me say that the book so far is wonderful and that I'm sure I'll be
using it often in the future. Thank you for writing it! However, I think I
found one errata. On page 68, you mention that in multiple line mode (/m), the
dot will match a newline character. Strictly speaking, I don't think that's
true unless you also use the /s (unless Perl has changed in that regard since
Mastering Regular Expressions was published). Regardless, it's a great book!

Glenn,

Yes. You're right. Thanks for pointing that out. I'll get it added to the
errata.

Thanks.
