Yes I assumed just that.

Thank you so much for adding this! This is very helpful!

I understand, but I think we should update the documentation to avoid
examples using the preg /e modifier, as the development of PHP has
deemed it bad practise and is now deprecated from PHP version 5.5.
As from PmWiki  version 2.2.56 we can avoid using Markup definitions
with /e modifier and using Markup_e instead, I think we should
encourage this in the examples. I guess this is just a matter of
taking the time to do so.
