All,

I'm getting the following problem when doing a substitution on a large string:

Substitution loop at ...

Is there a way to override this error? As it is, its annoying because
acts as a de-facto built in limitation on the size of strings that you
can substitute.

Is this fixed in the latest versions of perl?

Thanks much

Ed
