Today I was preparing a slide deck about new features in JavaScript regular expressions and came across the article "Named capture groups" written by Axel Rauschmayer. The section about backreferences caught my eye. There might be the situation that you're dealing with a regular expression that includes repeated character sequences like the following one: /(abc)(abc)(abc)/.
