> I came across problems with matchChunk, too, but for a different reason. I wanted to use it in a loop, so I could delete the required parts of each match. Unfortunately, even though it was returning 'true' to my regex - it *was* finding matches - it refused to populate my 'positionvars', so it was useless. 

if I remember well, to get the 'positionvars' populated, they must be initialized before (put 0 in...) and the regex must be in parentheses.
