getting comb to return match objects
Message ID:
Can someone give me an example of how to use the comb routine to
return a list of match objects?

The documentation here:

Mentions a boolean option to get match objects:

> If $matcher is a Regex, each Match object is
> converted to a Str, unless $match is set.

I gather that I must be reading this signature
wrong somehow, I can't get it to work:

> multi sub    comb(Regex:D $matcher, Str:D $input, $limit = Inf, Bool :$match)

I keep trying variations of things like this:

    my @hits = comb(m/$search_pattern/, $chunk, 100, True);
