This is a bug report for perl from james_avera@yahoo.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.12.4.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
In the perlre man page, in the section on "(?pimsx-imsx)", there
should be a '?' before &NAME in the following:

<quote>
   These modifiers do not carry over into named subpatterns called in the
   enclosing group. In other words, a pattern such as "((?i)(&NAME))"
   does not change the case-sensitivity of the "NAME" pattern.
