Bug #5624

Mismatch between code example and its description in text in Regexp documentation

Description

I found that in Regexp.html (doc/re.rdoc) under the heading Performance there is the description:

"Consider a string of 25 as, a d, 4 as, and a c."

with a code example:

s = 'a' * 25 + 'd' 'a' * 4 + 'c'
#=> "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaadadadadac"

The code example doesn't match its description.

I fixed that with the attached patch.
