FAQ

* Dave Mitchell [2016-05-30 15:09]:
As has been pointed out elsewhere in this ticket, an empty pattern is
interpreted as the "last successful match". The re-eval mechanism
takes this as being the currently executing pattern, and so you get
infinite recursion.
Is it possible to detect this case and die instead? It wouldn’t do what
the user likely expected it to even if it worked, after all.
