No output from this use re::engine::TRE; $_ = "Jon Jacob Jinglehiemer Schmitt\n"; print "Approx: $_" if /\(John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt\)\{~5\}/; But this comparison works fine echo "Jon Jacob Jinglehiemer Schmitt" |\ tre-agrep -s5 'John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt'

Note that repetition specification does work though... foreach ( qw/foobar xyzzy/ ){ print "zz matches: $_\n" if /\Qz{2}/; } P.S. \Q is a nice way of avoiding back-slashitis, except that it escapes some things that aren't RE meta characters and cause TRE to croak (notably ~). Including an overloaded version in the module would be a nice feature.
