Perl6 goes far beyond regular expressions.



Even with Perl5, if you're using too many regular expressions, you might want to check CPAN.

https://metacpan.org/search?p=1&q=parse&size=500 (over 4k results searching for "parse")

In particular, Parse::RecDescent, Parse::Yapp, Parse::Lex, Parse::Flex, Regexp::Common, Net::IP, NetPacket::IP, ... really most of the things you'd want to parse from Apache::ParseLog to Parse::DNS::Zone

The inclusion of (not so) regular expressions in a language doesn't mean one needs to abuse them.
