Thank you for taking the time to write out these examples! You're correct that I have typos in two of the string examples I gave (which I'll update now).

my understanding and experience thus far is that, assuming no flags, /+/ and // are both greedy and NOT possessive in isolation; it is specifically appending + to itself or a // that creates the non-backtracking

You taught me something new today, thank you. :)
