    regexec.c: White-space only
    Outdent to reflect removed enclosing block

    regexec.c: regmatch(): Add pushing eol
    This continues the process of changing regmatch() to be able to restrict
    the end point of where it is looking in the input, by adding that eol
    position to the pushed state, and popping it when appropriate.

    regexec.c: restrict match to substring in regmatch()
    This begins to add the capability to regmatch() to not look beyond a
    certain point in the string in order to find a match.  But this is
    currently set to the end of the entire string so it shouldn't affect any
    current outcomes.

    regexec.c: Add parameter to static fcn
    This parameter will be used to limit how far in the input string to
    apply the function to.  But currently, it is set to the end of the
    string, so there should be no change from previous behavior.

    regexec.c: Rmv unnecessary assigns
    We never use this variable again (this isn't in a loop unlike similar
    cases in other functions in this file), so we don't care if it gets
    updated.  Instead use the source value directly.

    perlre: Link technique for variable length lookbehind
    This web page gives a technique that one can use to achieve variable
    length lookbehinds.

    Add warning category for variable length lookbehind

    XXX unsure if this is right.  Need to reproduce to be sure. regcomp.c: Fix out-of_bounds read in qr// execution trace
    The argument to an NREFish node is not the number of the parenthetical
    group, but and index into a data structure that does contain that
    number.  The code previously didn't realize that.

    regexec.c: Delete unused macro

    regexec.c: Comment fixes, additions

commit cfd42b55df4380080415a581d7a58b9be69df529

Date:   Sun Mar 17 12:07:41 2019 -0600

    regexec.c: Move macro defns, comments adjacent to fcn
    Over the years the heading comments for regmatch(), as well as the macro
    definitions that are used by just it, have become separated from it by
    many intervening functions.  This moves things back so the things that
    apply just to regmatch() are just before it.
