      It is hard to say, because I do not know what the new format is
      supposed to be. However, some problems are apparent. When recalling a
      value that the regex has saved use \1, \2, \3 etc. not $1, $2, $3.
      The latter is for use outside of the regex, not inside it.

      It is not clear what $n is supposed to be doing. \n is a line return.
      Is that what you meant?
