 however, that this pattern currently triggers a warning message under
 the C<use warnings> pragma or B<-w> switch saying it
-C<"matches the null string many times">):
+C<"matches null string many times in regex">.
 On simple groups, such as the pattern C<< (?> [^()]+ ) >>, a comparable
 effect may be achieved by negative look-ahead, as in C<[^()]+ (?! [^()] )>.
