Bug #6526: minor typo in Regexp class documentation
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/6526

Author: nathanst (Nathan Stratton Treadway)
Status: Open
Priority: Low

Target version: 
ruby -v: 1.9.3


In the "Performance" section of the Regexp class documentation, the   intro to the first sample code block says "Consider a string of 25 as, a d, 4 as, and a c."  

However, as the return value given in that sample block makes clear, there are actually _four_ d characters in the string; it might make sense for the intro line to read "Consider a string of 25 as, 4 da pairs, and a c.", or something like that.  

(Also, that sample expression could be slightly simplied to: s = 'a' * 25 + 'da' * 4 + 'c' )
