There’s a superfluent ) at the end or a missing one somewhere before, don#t know what exactly you want to do here, but maybe you could try:

m/^username (\S+)(\s.*)? password (\S+|\s+)/

If you want to match case insensitive string, you could also add ‚i‘ at the end, f.ex.:

m/^username (\S+)(\s.*)? password (\S+|\s+)/i

but I’m not sure if this does what you want it to do.
What are you trying to match here?

Your regex matches:

* the string „username“ followed by a space
* at least one non-whitespace character
* optional whitespace
* a mandatory space
* the string „password“ followed by another space
* at least one none-whitespace character or at least one whitespace character

Is that what it should match?

Unmatched ) in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/^username (\S+)(\s.*)? password \S+|\S+) <-- HERE / at /var/lib/rancid/bin/srancid line 336.
I really should get a book on regex, I'm no good at it.  Backslash wrong way?

Does this handle it? Or does it have an encryption type indicator?
